  • We drove from melbourne via olinda. Great drive but be careful when wet. We saw two accidents on the way up. Great views. If you have a car (as opposed to being on a tour bus) you must pay an admissio...  more »
  • Often go to the place, enter the need to collect tickets, the mountain scenery is very good, especially when the weather is good, you can see City, Café Coffee is good, but food general.

  • Visited on the afternoon of New Year's Eve. From the moment we arrived at the gate the afternoon was excellent. The staff were very helpful, polite and clearly very happy in their work. Parking was easy. We had an excellent lunch in the bistro which had a very pleasant environment. The food was good value and once again, the staff were very accommodating. Thoroughly enjoyable.
  • As locals who were entertaining tourists who rarely visit Melbourne, we came to Sky High to enjoy dinner with the great view of Melbourne away from the city. Unfortunately the restaurant doesn't maximize their location/view in the way I would as a restaurant owner myself. For me, hospitality is about giving the customer the most rewarding experience for their patronage. As for Sky High - wonderful view outside, but nowhere to sit for dinner while enjoying the view at the same time. With the amazing location they have access to providing for customers, we were shocked at how little they actually utilize that view for dinner. There was a huge section of the restaurant that had a stunning view of Melbourne with a nice breeze and semi-outdoor covering. But staff had closed off that part of the restaurant with the most stunning view of the valley (not talking about upper floor for events). When we asked why a restaurant with such an amazing view would close off the part of the restaurant that guests would enjoy most? Staff responded rudely and seemed upset that we asked the question. The only dining area we were allowed to sit in was a completely walled off section with very little access to the view. One of our waitresses was kind, the other was rude. Water came 10 minutes after sitting down, food about 45 minutes. Food was decent enough, although with the risotto being as bland as can be. All in all, we won't be coming back to Sky High nor will we recommend it to others, and nor will we be taking family and friends who visit from around the world. It's a shame really.
  • The view is great, the prices are not. $6+ to go through the gate...which doesn't actually get you anything because there's nothing to charge an entry ticket for. If you want lunch, you better bring some from home.... because the restaurant charges around $12 for chips. Get a coffee here at the most. There's a maze which you have to pay extra for again... and the 'secret garden' is always booked out for private functions.
  • View is simply breathtaking! U can spot the city from this height slightly covered by the clouds. It's also a good place for wedding photos and a picnic! Restaurant has a covers a spectacular view, however the food unfortunately isn't as amazing as the view. Given the price point I expected a lot more. Presentation of the food looks alright. We had the beef, lamb and salad. Service by waitress for our table wasn't bad, however it's a hit and miss with some others waitress.
  • Location is good but the facilities are mediocre at the best. I went on 31st December and expected it to be crowded. But despite the crowd, the services were downright bad. There is just a single toilet and it was dark (no lights, seriously!) and smelly. Some of the public parks have better toilets than this. Half the facilities such as garden maze were closed or booked for private function such as terrace, secret garden etc. Being a vegetarian, there were not many options but the Chai Latte was little warmer than cold water. Oh and by the way, food is ludicrously expensive. I mean 12$ just for chips? Are you kidding me? I felt I could have spent new year's eve much better in Melbourne Star if I wanted to have a city view from high vantage point than this. Highly disappointed!

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
