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.

Sydney Tower Eye Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating My first time at this observation deck, really amazing view of Sydney. However from the inside you can hardly see the Opera House but overall a fantastic view of the city of Sydney. You need to enter this place from Westfield but it is a bit of a journey to fetch to. Perhaps the closest entrance to go from is from Castlereagh Street. Once at the deck, you can take photos, selfies, panoramas and videos for as long as you want. I went on a partly cloudy, sunny, showery day but the view is still nice. Many people would say that sunset views are the best, however it depends on the closing time, so please check the closing time on the day you plan to go. The prices are reasonable and not too expensive. There are concessions and kids prices available. If you are visiting Sydney, I would highly recommend a visit to this place if you are looking for an aerial view of the city.

4 Star Rating This is the place to come for a spectacular 360 degree view of the Sydney CBD and beyond. Unfortunately it was raining when we went but we still had fantastic views. I can only imagine what the view would be like on a clear day. It’s very wheelchair accessible which was great for us as we someone with us in a chair. The toilet facilities are very good also. We found the staff to be really friendly and helpful. You are able to get some snacks and drinks if you want also. I would definitely recommend a visit, especially on a clear day.

5 Star Rating Stunning views of Sydney from the top! The Skywalk is thrilling, and the 4D cinema adds a fun touch. Interactive displays are informative. Best to visit at sunset for spectacular cityscapes. Booking tickets online helps avoid queues. A must-see for tourists and locals alike. Highly recommend!

5 Star Rating Reasonably priced tourist attraction. Great way to see Sydney from a different perspective. We went at 1pm on Saturday with pre booked tickets and there was zero wait time. Great for kids as well as adults.

5 Star Rating I haven't been here for many years now, but today it was still just as lovely as it was back in 2010! The views out to where my Grandparents and Mum lived many year's ago in Vaucluse, to the beautiful Sydney Harbor Bridge, and all around Sydney Central and further out, was indeed a nice place to bring back some lovely memories. I suggest that all go and see it! An extra bonus was the young staff who were so very helpful and polite. Thank you 😊
