Sky Tower, Auckland Overview

Auckland's Sky Tower can be seen from almost anywhere in the city, soaring towards the heavens. This landmark tower provides some unforgettable views from its observation decks. The Sky Tower is a telecommunications office building that has several restaurants and bars on its premises and is also the tallest building in the southern hemisphere.

At a height of 328 metres, Sky Tower is in fact the highest man-made structure in the entire southern hemisphere. The tower is a popular attraction because it gives you a vantage point of the city that you can get otherwise only if you have a helicopter. Moreover, the tower has two adrenaline rushing activities. The SkyWalk, a walk on a narrow platform encircling the tower at about 190 metres high, or if walking is too boring, you can also simply jump off, an opportunity actually provided by the SkyJump (yes there will be a harness). Apart from these, there are cafes and restaurants on the tower as well, namely the rotating Orbit 360, the classy Sugar Club and the Sky Cafe.
