Eureka Skydeck 88
Get a bird's-eye view over Melbourne from the highest public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere from the 297-meter-high Eureka Tower. A stomach-churning elevator ride will whisk you up to level 88 in less than 40 seconds. From here, step into the Edge, a glass cube that slides out of the side of the building and dramatically suspends you over the urban sprawl. Not one for the fainthearted!

A Bird's Eye View of Melbourne
Hop in the elevator - it's only 975 feet to the top of the Eureka Tower! It was once the world's tallest residential building, but it's dropped to 12th as of May 2013. One clear day, I took the super fast elevator up to the SkyDeck, which occupies the entire 88th floor, for a breathtaking look at 360 degrees of Melbourne's sprawling metropolis. It's the highest man-made public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere. I love getting a bird’s eye view anytime I visit a new city because it gives me a much better idea of where I am than I could ever get from maps. Observation decks can be a bit pricey, but I’ve found they’re well worth the cash and you can take some amazing pictures. I found I was much more aware of my surroundings after flying over the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand and I definitely understood Auckland’s layout better once I was at the top of the SkyTower. Skydeck tickets start at $18.50.
