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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5Sydney Tower Eye Star Rating

5 Star Rating Visited for the first time in about 20 years, and I'm still super impressed with the views. Seeing all of Sydney while walking around the viewing floor is still a mind-blowing experience, even for someone who has almost always lived in Sydney.

5 Star Rating A perfect spot for family visit on weekends. See famous Sydney landmarks from a bird perspective. View is magnificent on a sunny day. Walking distance to Town Hall railway station. Plenty of souvenirs on offer.

4 Star Rating You’ll like the view from top of Sydney tower eye. We had great experience and enjoyed ourselves there. Perhaps we didn’t arrive on the time we expected to be there but as long as you get to see the view, you’re satisfied 😌 We visited four attractions in a day and we were exhausted 😩 However, we did have a good experience. 👌🏻

4 Star Rating A nice place to see the city of Sydney from above. We walked in and bought our tickets without any issues on a Monday early afternoon. We took the lift up to the tower. I wanted to go to their bar restaurant for a drink and snacks, but it was closed to the public with only a lunch buffet offered.

5 Star Rating This was super fun! They have a cafe where you can get drinks and small snacks. There is plenty of seating and great views. There is a VR rollercoaster experience. It was $20 for 2. It was fun but we were both a bit sick after. Highly recommend a stop. The views are beautiful!
