Charge your camera for panoramic photographs from SkyTower, 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.

  • Good view over the city, disappointed that they are still advertising cheap parking at Federal street carpark but no longer own it so had to pay $40 for 3 hours parking. Will remember for next time.

  • Honestly I can't thank the staff enough. They were truly amazing. From the front desk to jumping off the Tower. The service was exceptional! Felt very comfortable and confident in the two staff members in charge of our jump. Even upon landing was well cared for. Thank you! I highly recommend the experience.
  • Very cool place. Haven't been there in a long time and it is an experience worth trying. The elevator has a glass panel which is under you and is very cool. Very fun for friends or family! Highly recommend!
  • Must do if you are visiting Auckland. Beautiful views from the top. Classy restaurants and amazing sky walk. It is open all week days. Definitely a recommended experience don't miss it out
  • The icon of Auckland City. The name represents the structure. You can go to the top and have a splendid view of Auckland City. Day or Night has its own charm. At night the tower is decorated with mesmerizing ambient lights. Fine dining restaurants are available at the top, and the restaurant floor is rotating while you enjoy your meal, spoiling you with 360 bird views of Auckland City. Not only that, on the top, I mean the real top, you can challenge yourself for a 360 walk around the tower lips or even perform the sky jump to the ground. Not enough? There's a Casino right beside the tower entry for adults.
  • Blown away by the experience and food at orbit. My expectations were low going in, but I was pleasantly surprised by the food! Absolutely delicious. A great place to celebrate 🍾 ✨️
