About
At 250 metres above street level, Sydney Tower Eye is the highest point in Sydney - perfect for finding your bearings or just taking it all in. It's the perfect place to start your Sydney adventure. With views stretching out as far as the eye can see in all directions, there's no better place to find your bearings. Sydney Tower Eye is a true year-round visitor attraction. Gazing out across the beautiful harbour city you'll be captivated by the views of stunning Sydney in all its glory. Crystal clear skies in winter make for the best viewing distances of the year, while in Spring the explosion of Jacaranda Trees covers the Eastern Suburbs in vibrant splashes of purple. Sydney is at its best in Summer, and guests soak up the city's laid back Summer vibe from the cool air-conditioned deck as the streets swelter below. Autumn brings gorgeous orangery glows and the best sunsets of the year - the perfect time for 'that' picture of the city and harbour in the background.

Top ways to experience Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

    Stunning views
    Access is tucked away in the Westfield shopping mall but easy to find. We purchased tickets there, the staff made it very easy. As to be expected the views were amazing and a great way to orientate yourself with the city and harbour. The kids did the VR roller coaster experience which they enjoyed.

    Top of Sydney
    We had the chance to capture some amazing images from the tower and we waited until sunset to see and make pictures daylight and after sunset as well. We also went for a Skywalk where you will be given proper equipment and explain everything before you go up to the top. All in all, everything was good, but with all the hassle and equipment the Skywalk is completely safe. We thought that it is going to be more scarier but you can walk along the path without any further issues. If you wish to have the benefit of buying multiple tickets and you are interested in wildlife, zoo and want to see some famous people you can purchase a combined ticket for 119 dollars which includes Wildlife, Sea Life, Madam Tussauds and the Sydney Eye Tower with Skywalk included. They make photos about you during the Skywalk, as you are not allowed to bring any personal belonging with you and after you finished the tour you can purchase the pictures with 50 dollars. 40 if you decide before the Skywalk begins and you inform the crew in advance.

    Good views but expensive
    The views are okay but it is expensive and you can’t see the harbour bridge or opera house because views are obstructed by buildings. The lift is enclosed so you can’t see out. It’s a good experience but I think the cost of it per person was too much. We’ve done multiple similar in London - the shard and sky garden (which is free) which had open lifts and a cafe inside and good views of the city so think comparison may have let this down for us. On the plus side staff were friendly and lovely.

    Iconic Sydney skyline
    Sydney Tower, Centre Point iconic structure, still the tallest structure in Sydney, the 360-degree rotating restaurant (we had dinner there a long time ago). Next time we visit Sydney, must try Skywalk. (I have gait/walking challenges (stroke), wear a legbrace.)

    Happy New Year
    It was a great time. Emily and Sienna were both patient, informative, and personable. The views from the walk were incredible. We scheduled near to sunset, and after being overcast all day, the clouds parted, and the sun came out. Absolutely gorgeous!

    AWESOME SKYWALK EXPERIENCE!
    Skywalk tour was really fun Our guides were incredible really enthusiastic women who truly enjoyed what they were doing. Shaheda and Leila , sorry I'm sure I've butchered spelling, were very thorough making sure harnesses were secure , instructions clear and answered all our questions. We were very lucky that the weather was beautiful. Clear views and about 18 mph winds made it exciting. Get the picture pkg because you can't bring your camera or phone. Price very good. Now fir the bad, the tower is lacked with people in the line to go up, no separate line for people who purchased the walk. You must go to front of the line and show them your ticket, when the see you have the walk the take you right away to the elevator , and instructions you where to go. AGAIN terrible signage ! It's terrible confusing..so ask for help! Get there at least an hour before your yome or you won't make it!

    The best tower
    The best view of the airport and SydneySophie had always wanted to see the stunning views of Sydney from above, and the Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck was the perfect place to do just that. She had heard so much about the incredible 360-degree views from the top of the tower and couldn't wait to experience it for herself. As I stepped out of the elevator onto the observation deck, I was immediately struck by the breathtaking panorama that stretched out before me. The city skyline sparkled in the bright sunlight, and I could see the sparkling harbor and the famous Opera House. I slowly made my way around the edge of the observation deck, taking in the views from every angle. I marveled at the way the city seemed to stretch out endlessly in all directions and was amazed by the sheer scale of the buildings that surrounded me. As I reached the other side of the deck, I found myself staring out at the vast expanse of the ocean, which seemed to stretch out as far as the eye could see. The gentle breeze washed over me, and for a moment, I felt as though I was suspended in mid-air. I spent hours on the observation deck, taking in the sights and sounds of the bustling city below. I watched as the sun slowly set over the horizon, casting a warm glow over the city, and felt a sense of peace and contentment wash over me. As I rode the elevator back down to the ground, I knew that I would never forget the incredible experience of standing at the top of the Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck, and I knew that she would be back again one day to take in the stunning views once more.

    Other buildings hampered the view, but still nice.
    Getting to the venue was okay, there were signage that were easy to follow. Team was a bit gloomy that day, as it was raining and it was cloudy that morning, we were offered a "rain pass" but we did not avail of it to comeback though, as when we got up the rain eventually stopped and the clouds gave way a bit. Observation deck was a good size, facilities for handicapped persons were also available. Cooling was a tad low when we were the only ones there, that I began to perspire, but when more people came, cooling kicked into gear and made it more comfortable. The view, is... the view. If you have specific interests in the Sydney Skyline and neighboring streets, then you might really enjoy it. I personally liked looking at the skyscrapers. Its just that you don't get to see a picturesque view of the bridge and the opera house from here, as other buildings blocked the view. But still, a good experience and a delightful gift shop before going out. Oh, the photo packages were of good value since we were family, but would've liked to have more options on the background.

    Roof Climb Sydney Westfield Tower
    Great experience. Superior view of Sydney at significantly less cost than the Bridge climb. Maryam & Shradha both excellent as a team. They definitely both have the right temperament, as well as the interpersonal skills to make those nervous, feel at ease.

The tower was absolutely packed with what seemed to be a huge tour group who shoved into the lifts and pushed in the lines. People were sitting on the sills of the viewing windows so you couldn’t see, chatting and on their phones. More staff are needed to move people along and sort out the lifts.

Sydney Tower Eye is an excellent way to gain a panoramic overview of the fabulous Sydney CBD!

As I was visiting during the off-peak season, the queue was orderly, I was able to admire at my own time, the city view from every angle (360 degrees)!

Yami and Tom were amazing tour guides. They catered for my brother and others who were afraid of heights. They made everyone feel at ease and were very insightful.
Thank you for a wonderful time

What an exceptional tour experience. It was out 25th anniversary, and the tour guides Eresh and Hanj highlighted the experience to the highest level. Thoroughly enjoyed all of the tour aspects, and the commentary was immensely enjoyable and fun filled. Would recommend to anyone attending. A++++++ 100% perfect.

Must to do if visiting Sydney. We went early on a Monday morning, there was no queues, bought a dual ticket which included the wildlife centre, and went straight up in the lift. The views were fantastic, probably the right time to go too as you could tell the heat haze was moving in to obscure the sights in the distance later. You do get a view of both the bridge and Opera House along with many other beautiful sights.
We only went to the observation deck due to my wife’s fear of heights but it was well worth the entrance fee.
