Sydney Tower Eye and SKYWALK, Sydney

(3.6/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
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).

  • I am super afraid of heights and the elevator ride was exiting but for those who suffers of some pressure issue may not be the place to go( I head to equalize couple of times to the top ). In 44 secon...  more »
  • While this is a very Sydney thing to do, it was disappointing. Queues up to the tower were long and because the small elevators could only fit around 6-7 people at one go, were very slow to move. Comi...  more »

  • Very nice views of the harbour. A place to go for people wanting to have a quick glance at Sydney's amazing geography. The 4D 5min film at the beginning is not very useful, and the 3D effect is rubish. I've done the "skywalk" and I think it's not worth the price (plus you can't take your own photos).
  • Went there with my family it was so over crowded you could not move. On top of that they had a function there and all the amenities were all taken up. You could not even buy a coffee. It took just over an hour sitting in a line to get back down. Very poor service and not organised. Very bad experience. I live in sydney but deffinately never going back.
  • Good experience for first timers in Sydney. Strange 4D movie (required viewing?) aside, the highlight is definitely the 360 observation room offering heaps of great looks at the beautiful city of Sydney. $26 AUD at time of writing, though the outside deck ticket is an extra $43 more. It's a bit required to do that too since the daytime glare makes photos tough to do inside. Not happy with added cost but if you only had to do this once you may as well.
  • The observatory / Skywalk is a must-see for anyone new to Sydney. Some things to keep in mind if you're going for the Skywalk: - Buy tickets from the website as its generally around $15 cheaper. (you don't need to print them) - Arrive about 30 minutes early - Wear extra layers of clothing as it can get quite windy - Sadly you're not allowed to take a camera on the skywalk :( (or any loose items like phones. Sunnies are ok though).
  • came here for a birthday awesome place seriously loved the view great way to see sydney..and the mountains look amazing.
