Eureka Tower Skydeck Melbourne

Image of sunset at Euraka Skydeck 88.

Eureka Skydeck 88 is located on the 88th floor of the worlds tallest residential tower, Eureka Tower, situated on the banks of Melbourne's Yarra River.

As photographers, we made sure we were up on the tower's lookout at sundown. One of the good things is we could take our tripods up and capture those incredible scenes as the sun slowly set in the west. Pure gold for us.

With fabulous 360 degree views from the skydeck viewing area, panoramic scenes of Melbourne city and suburbs just can't be beaten. Open from 10am until 10pm daily, the Eureka Skydeck 88 is a must do activity for all visitors and locals alike.

Eureka Skydeck Southbank Melbourne

Image of Eureka Tower from SouthbankOne of the must do attractions of any visit to Melbourne, is taking the high speed elevator to the 88th floor of the Eureka Skydeck Lookout and enjoying the fantastic 360 degree views over Melbourne and suburbs. It takes just 37 seconds to travel from the ground floor to the 88th floor, Eureka Skydeck, in the elevator and it doesn't even seem to be moving.

With uninterrupted views of the city, Port Phillip Bay and sweeping vistas as far as the Dandenong and Macedon Ranges, you can literally spend hours and hours enjoying the sights and recognizing famous landmarks and well known Melbourne buildings. The MCG, Rod Laver tennis centre, Yarra River, Flinders St Station, the much aligned Federation Square and many other famous landmarks are literally just below you.

We strongly suggest a visit to the Eureka Skydeck near sundown. Sunsets are almost always spectacular, yet from the Skydeck they are simply brilliant. Just sit back and enjoy watching the sun go down from a different angle, the colours and effects are stunningly beautiful from up high.

Photographers are almost in heaven at the Eureka Skydeck. With all those views on offer, you can take shots of some of the best known buildings and tourist attractions from a different perspective.

For example, how many photos do you see of the Shrine of Remembrance from ground level, yet there are not too many around taken from the air! This is you chance to do some aerial photography without paying those big bucks for an aircraft. By the way, tripods are welcome, so the most dedicated photographer can feel at home.

Currently the tallest residential tower in the world, the developers set aside one complete floor, the 88th, as a public viewing platform.

Of course you do have to pay a fee to be able to enjoy those fabulous views, but it is worth every cent you pay to look out over what is regarded as the most livable city in Australia, Melbourne. Once up on the Skydeck you can purchase a cup of coffee or a coldie, have a snack and relax with all those views below.

There is a special viewing platform called "The Edge" that you are able to book, which is a glass cube which projects 3 meters out from the building, the floor is made of glass and you look straight down to the street below. The Edge is not for the faint hearted, yet is not seriously dangerous or anything. Call it a soft adventure, but an adventure it is, as you look straight down, seemingly just hanging in space, with no floor beneath your feet.

It's pretty awesome up there in the clouds, so make sure you go and take the elevator to the Eureka Skydeck viewing platform.
