Owner description: At 250 metres above street level, Sydney Tower Eye is the highest point in Sydney - perfect for finding your bearings or just taking it all in. It's the perfect place to start your Sydney adventure. With views stretching out as far as the eye can see in all directions, there's no better place to find your bearings. Sydney Tower Eye is a true year-round visitor attraction. Gazing out across the beautiful harbour city you'll be captivated by the views of stunning Sydney in all its glory. Crystal clear skies in winter make for the best viewing distances of the year, while in Spring the explosion of Jackaranda Trees covers the Eastern Suburbs in vibrant splashes of purple. Sydney is at its best in Summer, and guests soak up the city's laid back Summer vibe from the cool air-conditioned deck as the streets swelter below. Autumn brings gorgeous orangey glows and the best sunsets of the year - the perfect time to head out on a SKYWALK for 'that' picture of the city and harbour in the background.

“Stunning view of Sydney bays”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

It's a great value for money. Stunning lookout and lunch in one. I paid 50 AUD for an amazing view of Sydney. The tower is rotating 360 degree while you are enjoying your lunch. There is an "all you can eat" bar. You can taste crocodile, cangaroo and try some of the delicious desserts.
You can see an ocean as well as many little bays. You entry the tower from inside of shopping centre on the Pitt Street.

“I like Australia's Square tower better - a superior view and admission is free to the revolving restaurant”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

I note a recent reviewer from Miami was unhappy at "rip-off" prices of $45 to get to the top of Sydney Tower and another $50 to do the skywalk. We didn't even want to waste our money.

Sydney Tower used to be called Centerpoint Tower when it was completed (in 1976, I believe). I don't know when they changed the name. But before Sydney Tower, the 50-storey Australia's Square was the tallest building in Australia, from its construction in 1967 until about 1976. This is where we used to go up to view the city and the harbor. You still can.

Australia's Square (a round building at Martin Place near Circular Quay) has a revolving restaurant called The Summit on the 47th floor. The 48th floor has an observation deck. Is that high enough for ya? Admission to the restaurant is of course free, though I don't know the charge for the observation deck. In my view, the views are superior to Sydney Tower because you are closer to the harbour, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. You can see the six miles to the Pacific Ocean, amongst other things. Just buy a drink and an appetizer, or what not. I remember the meals were good (but pricey), but that was a long time ago. They used to have a killer buffet, but I don't know if they still do. The restaurant takes about an hour to revolve the full 360 degrees so you can see everything.

The three stars for "average" value is for Sydney Tower due to the high prices. Australia's Square gets five stars, though they don't have it open for separate review on TripAdvisor.
