Great views, day and night. You don't feel any movement. Eureka Sky Tower in Melbourne better! Was going to do the walk over but thought it might be too windy. Some people did it whilst we were there and it looked fine!

It is a 360 view from the top. Had our lunch on the deck while enjoying the great view. Some people mentioned that if we are lucky, we'll be able to see a whale swimming accross. Unfortunately we are not. :P

“Wonderful views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

Probably a little pricey for the time you spend walking around the observation deck. The views are spectacular but you probably won't spend a lot of time up there. The information around the edges of the windows is great. Unfortunately it was very busy and noisy when we went up and a little crowded to say the least. Probably a once in a lifetime experience.

This is good and best time to visit it in the late afternoon and evening . The view is excellent and a good place for photography too. In the late evening after sunset, lights from the deck itself cause reflection on the glass and one cannot get good pictures.This place is much much better than the Eureka Towers in Melbourne which has a similar deck. A must visit for everyone visiting Gold coast

“Felt underwhelmed after doing the Skypoint climb day before”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

On Tuesday 27th May myself and my girlfriend had done the Skypoint climb, which was absoutely amazing, and was told by their staff that with the wristbands we have we can access the deck before it closes to the public at 7pm. So we took off our equipment for the climb, went and have some dinner, then got changed into more classier semi-formal attire and made our way back to the deck entrance about 6.35pm. We were flat out told we cannot enter because they have to close soon and all the people at the deck were to leave soon by 7pm. I couldn't believe it, I felt like I've been somewhat embarrassed and went along with what the Skypoint climb staff had told us. So we came back the next day Wednesday around lunchtime, and spoke with the Skypoint climb staff about what happened the previous night, she immediately apologised, and gave us wristbands which were dated for today. We this time got it, and went to the observation deck. We didn't really feel the nervousness or natural wind like the day before, and we walked around reading some info on the tower and taking pictures, but we left within 20 minutes. I guess the night before really put me in a not-so-good-mood so that's probably why I didn't enjoy it as much as I should've.
