  • The access is via the shopping mall below. There is a 4D movie before the multiple lift ride to the top. For those adventurous persons a trip outside and round the observation dome is optional. Gives ...  more »
  • It is a wonderful place overlooking the Sydney skyline. Here, close to the Aquarium and do shopping at the same time, so is best. It might be a little expensive.

  • Beautiful views. The staff are lovely. The tower shows views of the whole of Sydney. The cafe is very small, with only drinks available, and the gift shop upstairs has different stuff to the one downs...  more »

  • Well worth the cost for a visit. We did the outside tour and that was also worth the cost. Kept us busy for a half day. You can see the entire city from the top. Staff were friendly and helpful. A very clean and well maintained place. I would recommend a visit if your in the city.
  • Spectacular view 5⭐️s from the observation desk. But the 4D experience is 1 ⭐️/5! I was shocked 🤯 with the movie duration & scenes selected; where are all those seats 💺 & the wild life scenes back in 2010! That blow tou away! The officer said things changed! Oh yeah, to the worse. Would i come back? I doubt it!
  • Sydney Tower Eye, is tallest building in Sydney, which can be accessed through westfield level-5. People can buy ticket's at westfield level-5, or they can buy online. If you forget to bring the printout of online ticket no need to worry just show them your ticket in your phone or soft copy. Staff at level-5 is so nice and very helpful. The 3D video shown at level-5, was really amazing which is included in tour package. Lifts hardly takes less than a min to reach to top level. Nice place to see Sydney city view and capture lovely images. There are lots of free accessible binoculars, which brings the things closer to your eye. Overall nice place to see city. You can carry water or snacks in your bag to have fun at top with your family or friends. A fun for kids. Recommend to go.
  • My visit was heaps of fun and everybody was really friendly and energetic! The souvenir store at the top of the tower is very reasonably priced and they have something for pretty much everyone. The skywalk was loads of fun too and our tour guide was awesome. The photo package was a little steep at A$50 but I went with it cuz some of the shots were pretty cool. Definitely a touristy place but a must do when visiting Sydney! 10/10
  • I visited the Sydney Tower Eye as an add-on to a Big Bus Tour (or rather it was part of the deluxe package) - I doubt I would spend the $28 just to go back up - (well, maybe for the nighttime showing since I only went just before noon). Maybe I set my expectations too high (no elevation pun intended) but I wasn't bowled over by the inside of the Eye. The initial elevator ride to the ticketing area was fine (though I couldn't understand how an air conditioned building was so hot). The 4D film was fun! The ride up the tower column to the Eye was claustrophobic and cramped as they are small wedges that they pack as many people as will fit. The views are massively spectacular and the height wonderfully dizzying. But it wasn't easy to get more than a fleeting view in any direction for long. Between people shoving their way in front of you to take selfies & families, kids, and even many adults pressing themselves to the glass and staying for long periods you can't be too polite. Prices for the drinks & food were predictably pricey, so take a bottle of water if you're going to be very long. The souvenir shops were surprisingly sprawled, but you can buy a post card there then mail it from "The Highest Working Post Box in the Southern Hemisphere!"
