For a bird's-eye view of the coast, go up to SkyPoint Observation Deck, located 230 m (750 ft) above ground. If you want to try something more daring, go for the SkyPoint Climb, which involves an open-air walk on the top of the iconic Q1 building and lasts 90 minutes. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Gold Coast holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the SkyPoint Observation Deck and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
SkyPoint Observation Deck Reviews
Had a relatively good time. Not sure if I would pay retail prices for the experience. I was able to go with my yearly theme park pass and while it was nice to see the coast from above, I couldn't help but feel bad for those who had paid full fare to get up. Sure, it's nice to see the city from that elevation but after 10 seconds the feeling is gone. I felt obligated to walk around and observe a bunch of buildings for 20 minutes just because I had made the trip in the first place. I'll take my kids here next time and hope they appreciate things for longer. Overall it was good. Just wish the windows were cleaner.
A must-do - fantastic views on level 77 of the Q1 bldg which is closely situated to the heart of Surfers. Sit, relax and eat or drink with food bought from the bistro...or just relax and enjoy the stunning views. Fantastic photo opportunities. The staff in the bistro were especially wonderful, a couple of the staff at the entrance a little disapointing although one very lovely lady made up for it. Good idea to purchase the bistro voucher offer when buying the ticket, gave us $20 bistro vouchers for $10. If you're an NZ or Australian citizen use your Gold card for a discount on observation deck entry cost.
