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!

This is a must visit even if you're scared of heights (I am). You travel to the 88th floor in 38 seconds and the skydeck is completely enclosed in glass so it's not so scary. The views of Melbourne are amazing. If you're brave/foolhardy you can step into the cube which overhangs the building and has a 'see through' floor although it's not recommended if you're claustrophobic or scared of heights.

Took the family and had a great time. I really was impressed by this attraction. It was not very crowded, and the sky was clear.

The Edge was excellent but not an absolute must. However, a novel aspect to this attraction, just be aware it can be an hour plus wait to get on. My family thought it was worth the wait because how many times in your life can you be suspended 88 floors high only supported by 4cm of glass?

We were in the city recently seeing a show and decided to check out the skydeck while we were in the area. We were thrilled to find that we received a discount with our theatre tickets. We go there just in time with a big line forming behind us as we were purchasing our tickets. As soon as we got to the top we bought our edge tickets, with an hour and a half wait. We were given a pager which would let us know when it was our turn and were free to enjoy the views while we waited.

It was right on sunset when we got up there, so we wandered around and took in the view while the sun was setting. Unfortunately it was cloudy and hazy, so not much of a sunset as such, but it was pretty seeing the city light up. That took all of about 20 minutes, so we still had about an hour's wait until our turn in the edge. We bought some drinks, but it was very crowded up there and there was really nowhere to just sit and relax. Eventually a spot cleared up on one of the benches so we were able to sit down there.

Our pager went off quite early, which was a nice bonus - it had only been about an hour. The edge was well worth doing as a once off experience, it's something quite different. I really liked one of the photos they took of us, but was not willing to part with another $15 after having already paid for our entrance tickets, then the edge tickets, then overpriced drinks while we were waiting. It certainly wasn't a cheap night out, even with the discount from the theatre tickets, but worth doing for something different.

we went to eureka skydeck 88 at night because we thought that night view will be quite nice :) the elevator went up in 9m/s which was really fast. The view was great and you also get to go outside and if you are thrill seeker, definitely try edge experience.

Was really nice up here, and to look through the telescopes and see Melbourne this way almost in a birds eye view but you can get really close. very unusual but enjoyable experience. Not recommended for those afraid of heights
