Eureka Skydeck is the Southern Hemisphere’s highest viewing platform with the world’s first EDGE experience.
For tourists and locals alike, the Eureka Skydeck is one of the best attractions in Melbourne.
Standing at a staggering 297 metres above the streets of Melbourne, the Skydeck is the highest in the Southern Hemisphere. View Albert Park Lake, Port Phillip Bay, the Dandenong Ranges and beyond from a new angle and use one of the 30 viewfinders around the Skydeck to look at some of Melbourne’s favourite attractions like the MCG, Federation Square and Flinders Street Station.
Don’t miss these attractions at the Eureka Skydeck
In just 38 seconds, take the fastest elevator trip in the Southern Hemisphere to reach the Eureka Skydeck, where guests can enjoy stunning 360-degree views of Melbourne during the day and night. However, the view outside isn’t the only sight to see, with the Skydeck ceiling mimicking the appearance of a changing sky, complete with clouds, lightning, and amazing thunderstorm effects.
For the thrill-seekers among us, experience The Edge, a completely see-through glass cube that extends from Eureka tower’s 88th floor to suspend you nearly 300m in the air!
You can also capture these unique experiences at Eureka Vertigo, a green screen installation where guests can pretend they’re falling, losing balance or hanging 88 storeys in the air. Participants will receive a 9” x 6” printed photo as well as a digital copy.
