Owner description: SkyPoint Climb takes place on the top of the Q1 building in Surfers Paradise and at 270 metres in the air, it is one of Australia's highest external building walks. Starting on level 77 of SkyPoint Observation Deck, Climbers will enter the open air dressed in a full body suit and harness. Following their Climb guide, participants will then traverse up towards the crow's nest located at the highest point of the Climb at around 270 metres above the ground. Regular stops will be taken to admire the stunning 360 degree views of the Gold Coast region including the golden beaches, city skyline and lush green hinterland. Climbers will then descend to level 77. Altogether the experience takes approximately 90 minutes including a briefing session and the time on the Climb course.

“Amazing Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

You can see just how far the Gold Coast stretches from this vantage point. If the lift ride doesn't amaze you, the views will. Breathtaking! You can spend hours taking it all in!

Loved the amazing views, and being able to have a drink or something to eat at the highest place on the Gold Coast.

“A good value view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

The Skypoint Tower is at Surfer's Paradise, a 320m observation deck on top of the tallest residential tower in the southern hemisphere. The high speed lift (elevator) rises 3 floors per second! It climbed 77 floors in just over a minute, and very smoothly - just don't look up as the screen on the lift ceiling shows the upward journey in real time!
The views were certainly spectacular, in spite of the rather overcast skies. To the east was the Pacific Ocean and stretching north and south was the beach. The coastline was clear from Coolangatta on the NSW border, where Gold Coast airport is located. It continues almost unbroken until it meets the Brisbane river, 20km to the north, and the city suburbs. Gold describes the colour of the sand, even under grey sky, and the ocean is aquamarine. 
To the west, Gold Coast suburbs cover the hinterland, up into the foothills of the coastal range. This was also clearly visible, although grey clouds were building there. Surfer's Paradise, Southport and Labrador are all coastal suburbs with large numbers of high rise hotels, backpacker lodges and holiday apartments. Behind this strip is a series of lagoons and linked waterways for local residents to have waterfront properties. We could see houses with landing stages and a good number of vessels moving around these canals. We took lots of photos!
It was good value for money and we spent an hour walking round the observation deck. It is possible to spend more time and money by 1) booking a climb to the very top of the tower - suit, harness and guide provided, and/or 2) having a coffee in the Skypoint coffee bar. We did neither, so can't comment on those.

“Don't pay full price to see this”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

The view is good but not really worth the $29 price tag for full price. Has an unpleasant smell up there. The coffee was overpriced and tasted like heated dishwater.
