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!

“How high can you be?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Great view and is the talest public observation deck in southern hemisphere with fastest lifts around at 9 m/s. That is close to "free fall" when going down, impressive.

“Great place for a special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Hadn't been before but my daughter was paying; it cost her a fortune to feed the family. The restaurant view at night is amazing, the food great; not large quantities but beautifully presented and tasty. The waiters and waitresses are great. They are attentive to your every wish. The lifts are fast and the toilets are especially clean. Try it!!!

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Only takes a few seconds to take to up to see the beautiful city of Melbourne, best time to go is just before sunset so u can see the best views in the light of day also under lights, there is a coffee bar there where you can relax and have a drink and enjoy the views.
You have the choice to enjoy them behind glass on the observation deck or you can go outside and take some great shots without the glass in your way , it is perfectly safe and fenced off.
There is also a glass cube you can view from if you are feeling like a daredevil where you are extended 3 meters from the building in the glass cube.

“Nice view... shame about the price...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I like the place and I like the view however my problem with this place is that, like a lot of other Melbourne attractions, it leaves tourist with the feeling that they've been fleeced. It's just a tad too pricey for a lift ride. Other than that, it is impressive. Still though, prefer Railto myself
