Erected in 2006, the Eureka Tower is the city’s tallest building, a staple of Melbourne tourism. Its Skydeck is located 285 meters above ground, and it only takes a 38-second elevator trip to get there, making it the fastest elevator ride in the southern hemisphere.
The Skydeck offers a floor-to-ceiling, 360-degree view of Melbourne, including Albert Park Lake, Port Phillip Bay, the Dandenong Ranges and beyond — plus a look at some of the city’s favorite attractions and landmarks, such as the MCG, Federation Square and Flinders Street Station. It’s open daily from 10:00am to 10:00pm, with last entries at 9:30pm. Tickets may be purchased at Eureka Tower on the day itself, but you’ll save a few dollars if you buy them online here.
Tickets purchased online are valid for 12 months from purchase, and no advanced booking is required for entry. Visitors can also venture onto “The Edge,” a glass cube projecting from the 88th floor, 300 meters above Melbourne — not for the faint hearted!
You can find it at Riverside Quay, Southbank Melbourne 3006.
