The Sydney Tower is the tallest structure in the city and forms a prominent part of Sydney's skyline. Featuring a shopping centre, restaurants and entertainment facilities, the prime attraction of the tower is the Sydney Tower Eye, an observation deck 250 metres above the ground, granting visitors an unforgettable view of Sydney’s cityscape.
The Sydney Tower stands at a mammoth height of 309 metres. Built in 1981, it is the second highest observation tower of the Southern Hemisphere, falling behind the iconic 328 metre Sky Tower of Auckland. Even so, the Sydney Tower Eye happens to be on a higher ground than that of the the Sky Tower’s observation deck, thus presenting with some magnificent views of the city of Sydney and its landmarks. Whether you come here during the day, watching the blue ocean meet the harbour, or at night where you can marvel at the city lights that seem to extend endlessly, the Sydney Tower is a must-visit of the city, as is the case for many of the tourists. Apart from the marvellous viewing deck, Sydney Tower is also home to a shopping centre at its base, and three levels of dining, namely the Sydney Tower Buffet, 360 Bar and Dining and STUDIO, the last of which holds the honour of being the highest event space not just in the country, but the entire Southern Hemisphere. If the views from Sydney Tower Eye weren’t enough to impress you, an open-air glass skywalk encircles the area, bringing you one step closer to the breathtaking cityscape of this magnificent city.
