Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web
Sitting at 285 m (935 ft) above the streets of Melbourne, Eureka Skydeck 88 is the highest public vantage point in a building in the Southern Hemisphere. Its name comes from its home on the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower, which itself is the 12th highest residential building in the world. For a thrill, walk out on The Edge, a glass enclosure that hangs 3 m (10 ft) off the side of the building.

  • It's worth coming up to the skydeck at least once to check out the awesome view. Try going just before sunset so you get daytime views, sunset views and then can see it all nicely lit up at night. Bit...  read more »
  • Went up on a stunning clear day an was not let down the views were spectacular.. service was so nice the staff were so polite.. 
  • I have been to the Skydeck 88 a number of times and each time it has been an experience. There is always something happening around the city to look at and the glass "box" is always fun. 
  • Incredible view up there. Price of admission is quite high but it's definitely worth going to at least once. I would recommend paying the extra for The Edge experience, unless you are afraid of heights. Or comfortable with heights. It's pretty terrifying, but in a good, memorable and fun way.
  • Beautiful place to visit and see Melbourne from a different angle! Great photos and videos were taken! It's awesome for a day out, but the only thing is it's pricey and what's you've been once, there's not much point going again. And parking might bite you... None the less an awesome place in Melbourne to visit! Would definitely recommend it to all tourist and those wanting to take photos!
  • This place was very well planned. You get a fantastic view of the city and you can enjoy some drinks and appetizers. If you are brave anough you can get the extra pack and actually go to the external obervatory they have, with the glass bottom.
  • The @eureka_skydeck is probably the best spot to see the whole of Melbourne city. Sometimes when I visit a new place (or return to an old one), I always do one sort of touristy thing like go up an observation deck and catch views like this. I love it. Best times to come is just before sunset and watch as the lights make the city come alive. In almost all the cities I’ve done this, the view is breathtaking. I do love Melbourne.
  • $51 for me and my daughter to do the Edge experience for her birthday, needless to say it seemed bloody steep! When we bought our ticket they told us one hour to wait for the edge experience. An hour seemed reasonable so up we went. Once you're up there you do your walk around the small space where sullen and empty eyed people are waiting for their turn. After the first 15-20 mins you've seen everything and you join the masses of zombies waiting for your turn. The experience itself was actually pretty fun, with some good scares and a couple belly drops. Although expensive it was good, I'd just recommend going outside of busy times (weekends).
