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.

Sydney Tower Eye Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating Pretty cool view of the city! Little cafe up the top of you need a quick snack or a souvenir. The lifts up and down are speedy but there can be a line up as they only hold a smaller number of people. The Free binoculars provided are a bit of fun too. They’re fixed in place but the different height are a nice touch.

4 Star Rating A great experience for sure. The view is amazing and it's a whole different perspective from up there which makes it even better. We got the pass for multiple attractions so the price was quite good considering the experience. The staff was great and there was not much waiting time. We went during the day so the photos of the people came out overexposed so remember to use your flash to balance out the lighting if you're after nice photos 🙌

3 Star Rating It was nice to see Sydney in bird’s eye view. You get a much better picture of this cosmopolitan and green city. We chose a late afternoon visit to see the sunset. It was worthwhile. The sunset that day was lovely. The biggest let-down was the windows - they’re seriously way too dirty. It was hard to get a good photo without taking in the marks on the window (see my photo). For a business that is based on giving a good city view, cleanliness of the windows should be top priority. Otherwise, the entrance was good, wait time wasn’t long. Overall, it’s a pleasant thing to do while visiting Sydney.

4 Star Rating Experience: As you can see in my photos, I was able to capture different moments of the Sydney Tower Eye. I was able to witness the beautiful overlooking view of Sydney during the day, sunset, and night. I would say I was really enamored by the beauty of Sydney for it is a mixture of a highly urbanized city and unpolluted seas. This unique combination gave me the chills when I viewed it at the top. Aside from that, observing the sunset from this place was such a unique experience. It was just amazing to see the phase where the city suddenly becomes alive at night. I can definitely vouch that the view up top is very very beautiful. Perhaps, the major downside for me of this place is that it is too crowded. Of course it makes sense that it will be crowded since it is at the heart of the city, and a place that most tourists will come to visit. It’s just a personal thing but I prefer to visit places that have less people (you can refer to my other reviews for reference). If you are fine with crowds, then, you will absolutely love this place. Planning your trip: For me, best time to visit this place is when it is around sunset. You can witness how Sydney changes from day to night and it is a wonderful experience. The night view is such a spectacular scene. Aside from that, if in any case you get bored of the place, you have tons of options to visit after. Unlike scenic spots in rural areas where they are the only good place in the area, after enjoying yourself with the view of Sydney Tower Eye, you got tons of places to visit after.

5 Star Rating The Sydney Tower Eye offers a breathtaking perspective of the city skyline from its lofty heights. While my visit coincided with a cloudy day, it was evident that on sunnier days, the panoramic views would undoubtedly be even more spectacular. Despite the weather, the experience was still memorable, with the vast expanse of Sydney laid out below, showcasing its iconic landmarks and bustling streets. From the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the distant Blue Mountains, the vista from the tower provides a unique and captivating view of the city. For optimal visibility and photo opportunities, a visit on a sunny day would be ideal, but even on overcast days, the Sydney Tower Eye remains a noteworthy attraction worth exploring.
