Sky Tower, Auckland Central

Charge your camera for panoramic photographs from Sky Tower, the tallest structure in New Zealand. Auckland's eye-catching landmark, this 328 m (1,076 ft) observation and telecommunications tower rises over the city's business district and remains best known for its unique needle-like design. An elevator whisks you to the top in less than 40 seconds, leaving plenty of time for breathtaking views from one of the observation decks. For an extra kick of adrenaline, take a peek at the city below through the glass-floor panels. If you happen to be here at sunset, you can see the colors changing over the city and enjoy a cocktail at the tower's cafe/bar.

  • Worth the ride and view of the city. Be sure to stand near the edge. Great tour and nice break from the usual.  more »

  • This is a must if you’re in the area! As the pics show, fabulous day for seeing it all but the star is the revolving restaurant. Kind of weird, particularly when people are doing either the skywalk or...  more »

  • The view was very nice and we liked it.check this place to get a view of Auckland. Worth the view! You get 360 degree view of the island, ports and the near by places! We had the map of Auckland and we could compare it. It was accurate , we specially looked out for the shape and coastal lines. Walking on the glass floor gives a mixed feeling, sometimes you are excited and at times scared. We did not the photograph package but they have an interesting selfie booth at the deck! That's amazing. Recommend this!
  • Amazing views (obviously), with a multitude of restaurants and services available. Friendly and helpful staff, with relatively good value food and drinks at orbit 360. Would definitely recommend 360 for the views and service, food and drinks were rather pleasant as well. Gift shop at bottom seems a little too touristy though, as the sky tower seemingly attracts as many local tourists as it does international.
  • Sky tower is one of the iconic places in Auckland. It gives great views all over Auckland city. There are a lot of adventurous activities to do for people. There is a restaurant as well. You can have photographs taken and get them at the reception with effects. It gives awesome views of Auckland all around. The elevator takes you to different levels. Walking on the glass floor is quite an experience. It’s a good visit if you visit Auckland.
  • Great views of Auckland from above. We decided to take the day and night ticket, which gives you access to the tower during the day and then again during the night. If you want to watch the sunset, be there early and secure your spot as it gets fairly crowded. Overall, fair pricing for awesome views.
  • Brilliant views of Auckland. We went to Orbit restaurant and had a lovely 3 course meal, best time is dusk, as the light changes from day, through to night and you get the best views. The restaurant revolves slowly affording a panorama that reminds us how lucky we are to live here.
