Your visit to the iconic Sydney Tower begins at the base of the tower with the included 4-D Cinema experience where you will enjoy an awesome film showing off Sydney in all its glory with special effects you can even feel. Afterwards you will be whisked to the top of the tower by one of three high-speed double decker elevators in about 40 seconds. From there you will enjoy breathtaking 360° vistas of Sydney and it's beautiful harbour.

Sydney Tower, also known as the Sydney Tower Eye, or simply Centrepoint Tower is the tallest structure in Sydney and ranks as the 2nd highest observation tower in the southern hemisphere! Located on top of Westfield Shopping Centre, construction of the tower commenced in 1975 and it was first opened to the public in 1981. The overall height is 1014 feet above ground which is 1073 feet above sea level. The enclosed observation deck offers visitors a spectacular panoramic view of Sydney from 820 feet above ground. If you purchase tickets in advance you can take part in a guided tour of the glass floor Skywalk, a 2002 addition to the tower, where you will enjoy an even more exhilarating experience from 879 feet up.

Rated 4.2 out of 5Sydney Tower Eye Star Rating

3 Star Rating Given the price, this tower is not a necessary attraction to visit in Sydney. The Opera House is barely visible from the top. There are better places to admire the panorama of Sydney. I would recommend Harbour Bridge Walk (the pedestrian walkway is open and free of charge) and you can climb the Pylon Lookout for a fraction of the price of the Tower Eye.

3 Star Rating I can see why this place has mostly 3 star reviews... To begin it's not exactly the easiest thing to find. The entrance is through the mall on the 4th floor, through a maze of shops with different entrances on different streets. It can be a bit confusing since there is no straight shot entrance from the street that take straight to the Tower. If you are used to visiting Towers with a view this is a very ordinary trip. Nothing special, spectacular, breath taking, amazing or particularly interesting. The worst part is; the views of the most iconic structure in Sydney...shoot I reckon all of Australia is blocked!! There are several high rise buildings blocking the views of the Opera House. I believe it's only going to get worse in the future...I think there are plans to build more high rise towers that overlook the Sydney tower further obstructing the views of the Harbour. If you don't have anything to do...go ahead. I wouldn't recommend coming here. It's definitely not a must do of must see event.

3 Star Rating You see the whole Sydney from a different eye, great! But there is nothing else to do while you are up there. I would've preferred if they created a sort of open air balcony where you can have that sensation being up there rather than just behind a thick glass shield.

5 Star Rating Wow the tower is pretty much worth it. Just remember that some directions the view is a little blocked by other buildings. And hopefully the day you go up it's sunny and you can have a nice experience. The views out over much of the city are quite breathtaking.
