Eureka Skydeck 88, Melbourne

4.3
Sitting at 285 m (935 ft) above the streets of Melbourne, Eureka Skydeck 88 is the highest public vantage point in a building in the Southern Hemisphere. Its name comes from its home on the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower, which itself is the 12th highest residential building in the world. For a thrill, walk out on The Edge, a glass enclosure that hangs 3 m (10 ft) off the side of the building.

  • It is a Melbourne Ico. I highly recommend heading up the tower on dusk time. Enough to see the city in day time and then the lights of the city. Some days you will have to cue, avoid the kid crowd and...  more »
  • Experience not to be missed to enjoy the view of Melbourne. Shame about the cloudy day ... and the gem of paying outdoor deck.

  • Very cool. I didn't bother with 'the edge' and I don't think I missed out, but horses for courses really! There are neat little viewfinders that are focused on a particular landmark so you just look down them and are instantly looking at the landmark without having to try and locate them yourselves. The viewfinders are set at two heights per lookout so children can also use them. There are also binocular posts which are free to use. I spent around 45 minutes on the observation floor, and used Australia's highest postbox!
  • Spent New Years eve here. Was a good night, food was good, service was great considering it was a night that not many people want to work. Great 360 degree views of the city. Was interesting to be above the fireworks being on level 88. Expensive but worth the experience.
  • Great views over all of Melbourne! No line when we went so nice an quick to get up to the top. Didn't pay extra for the 'edge' experience - a corner of the building with a metal cage around you. It had a long wait and was a bit scary looking for our kids.
  • Excellent views of Melbourne and suburbs as well as Port Phillip Bay. Best visited on a clear day. Nice cafe to get coffee and cxake while admiring the views and relaxing during a busy day exploring Melbourne. The Edge experience gives a different perspective from the glass walls and floor. Well signed so that visitors can identify landmarks from the deck easily.
  • Amazing place to visit, but be prepared to have your personal space violated. There are way too many people allowed on the observation deck and all of level 88. It is also a bit stuffy up there. The trip in the elevator is surprisingly quick and not that frightening. Worth the visit. Bring a good SLR camera for some great snaps.

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
