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.

  • So, I wasn't too sure WHAT to expect...even though I live in Auckland... Is it a Tower made of Sky? Is it owned by someone named Sky? Why is it next to a city also made of Sky? What is Sky? Isn't Sky that satellite TV channel thing? Why is TV building towers? Maybe it's a big Satellite for the TV people! WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! It's actually a really tall-ass building in the middle of Auckland, the view is fact, you can ALMOST see Mordor. If you're not a fan of heights, then it probably isn't a good idea for you to go up. Otherwise 13/13!
  • The view is very beautiful and the bungee jumping is soo fun! I love it and deifinelty want to come back and revisit that sky tower
  • dosent touch da sky bo
  • The views from this place are amazing. We went at sunset and it was amazing. You could see every corner of the city from the top of the tower. The wait to the get to the top wasn't long at all.
  • I was impressed with the view - it is even more awesome than you think. Would go there every week and enjoy the sunset.
