Owner description: Nothing you have ever experienced will prepare you for the awe inspiring view of Melbourne from the observation deck of the highest public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere. Located at Level 88, Eureka Skydeck is Melbourne's new 'must-see' attraction. Skydeck 88 is the only observation deck in the world that can thrill you with the Edge - a glass cube which projects 3 metres out from the building, with you in it!

“Better in good weather.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I visited the skydeck earlier this month, and the weather deteriorated as i got there.
The views were fantastic, and I even manged to enjoy them with a beer purchased from the refreshments facility up there.
I didn't bother trying the glass bottomed edge for an additional fee, as i have done that elsewhere several times, and with the failing weather, decided it was not worth the money.

I ended up spending over an hour there to get my monies worth and also watch the approaching storm, that failed to materialise.
In my view, an hour is probably about long enough walking around looking at the same views.

“Great for first timers in Melbourne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

It was my first time visit to Melbourne and I guess it's worth the visit the Eureka Skydeck.

You do go up a lift which travels really quickly (mind you, the air pressure in the ears can get you) but well worth the view from the very top!

It would roughly take about 20mins to have a good look at the panoramic views in the morning and you can enjoy the coffees when you're there but it's really nothing that too exciting!

It's great for first timers and everything always look good when you're at the very top.

“Excellent views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Worth the pennies for the views and the speed of the lift, expect your ears to pop.10% discount to sky deck with MYKI card.
The information board on ground floor was irritating as info changed electronically too quickly before had time to read.

“Views were stupendous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Hated queuing but to be expected! Well worth the wait though! If visiting at any time of the year advise get there as early as possible for the clearest view and less queues!

“Amazing Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

You can get a terrific view of Melbourne from all directions. There is a glass panel which slides out from the side of the building on the 88th floor. Not for the faint hearted!
