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.

Your Sydney Tower Eye experience can also include dining with a view from either of two revolving restaurants, one featuring a full menu and the other offering a buffet.
