Owner description: Auckland's Sky Tower is the tallest structure in the Southern Hemisphere, this tower is more than 300 metres high. Offering stunning views, along with award winning restaurants, a gift shop and an opportunity to push your limits by walking the outside of the viewing platforms, or by jumping off from 192 metres above Auckland's CBD.

What do go go for? The views. And these are really really good, giving you a real understanding of locality and wonderful setting of Auckland. But to get there you have to go through a dingy basement of mixed franchises with differing offers all selling their momento t shirts. For us this detracted slightly from the experience
. On the viewing platforms there are small plaques explains what you are seeing at the 186m level, but nothing at the more expensive 220m level. They really could have tried harder on things like local history and background of what you are seeing. But at $18 eax

At first, we were a little skeptical as to whether it was worth the ticket price to go up the tower, but had no regrets once we did and saw the views from up there. We went when it was almost sunset, and managed to catch a lovely sunset from there. There were many tourists who seemed to be enjoying themselves too. The 38mm thick glass floors were also quite intriguing and it was amusing watching the reactions of different people when they were deciding whether to step on the glass floors or not.

This is quite a pricey attraction when you consider how long you spend up there. At $28 for an adult we were a little iffy on going up. This being said its something you really can't miss. A trip up to the top with my height phobia boyfriend proved a little shaky but the view was absolute amazing. You can see all of Auckland from the tower, and you can even watch some of the sky jumpers, I was brave but not that brave lol. Worth going up for a look

The tower is a must to get a panoramic view of Auckland. We went to the highest viewing platform and we could see for miles. From the lower platform it is possible to watch the people doing the sky jump; this was a very popular attraction for all us that were too afraid to do it ourselves.
The cafe has great views and is no more expensive than elsewhere in Auckland.
