Sydney Tower Eye and SKYWALK, Sydney

3.7
#1 of 17 in Childrens Museums in New South Wales
Observation Deck Observatory
Starting at a height of 250 m (820 ft) above the ground, Sydney Tower Eye and SKYWALK provides outstanding panoramic views of the city and its harbor. Walk around the Eye, reading information about the wind speed, direction, and sway amplitude outside, and then watch video footage from around Sydney in the 4D cinema. If you've joined an organized tour of Sydney Tower, it will likely bring you to Skywalk, an open-air platform with a glass floor encircling the Eye at a height of 268 m (879 ft).

  • We went here on a school trip and I was more than ecstatic! We went to the 360 Buffet (it rotates without you noticing!) and it was amazing. The food was brilliant, it was hard to make such lovely food look good on my plate (as in, I grabbed so much, it looked messy). Our class enjoyed a tour of the kitchens and the buffet and it was very informative. If you meet Catherine or Danielle, they are lovely :) Would recommend!
  • As a whole, the whole Sydney tower "experience" was quite lackluster. First, after the lengthy wait in line, for some stupid reason, we were forced into watching a completely unnecessary 4D "experience" which was one of the worst 4D experiences I have ever partaken in. Afterwards, after some random green screen photos (*cough* *cough* tourist trap *cough*) that cost a ludicrous $40! we finally boarded the elevator up to the observation deck. The view was actually pretty good, however, the view was all there was to the observation deck. After we saw the spectacular view, we went down to the Sydney Tower Buffet. The buffet consisted of: a decent selection of food with a rotating restaurant, with the tables situated near a great view of Sydney. It was mesmerizing, until we put the food in our mouths. Your mother could probably cook just as well as the chefs here. The food was VERY mediocre considering the heavy price tag. I would probably give this 2 stars, if the staff didn't exist. The staff was by far the best staff I have ever encountered in my life for any restaurant I have ever been to. Overall, go ahead and see Sydney at the observation deck, but make sure you eat at another restaurant when you get hungry. Thanks for taking the time to read this review.
  • Awesome all you can eat with a view! Well worth the $65 per person charge for lunch. Staff were courteous and helpful, the food was delicious, fresh, full of variety and plentiful - the chef would often ask if you would Ike a fresher sample and select a new dish for you!! The view is the best in Sydney, we weren't hurried even though we turned up late' it took about an hour for the full circle but you could stay up there for hours just checking out our beautiful city.
  • If you're afraid of heights this isn't the place for you but it is amazing to see otherwise. There are restaurants, souvenirs, snacks, etc. The staff was great when we visited and the views were spectacular on such a beautiful day. You could see for miles! A definite add to any Sydney travel list.
  • To have a Best view of Sydney from sky, must see place. One of the most attractive place in Sydney for tourist. You can undoubtedly put in your bucket list

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
