SkyPoint Observation Deck is located on Levels 77 and 78 of the Q1 Building in Surfers Paradise and is Australia's only beach side observation deck. Rising a sheer 230 meters into the sky, SkyPoint is one of the Gold Coast's most popular attractions and has become a must see destination for locals and visitors alike. It provides stunning 360 degree panoramic views that stretch from the surf to the hinterland and beyond and provides the perfect location for visitors to experience the shimmering Gold Coast skyline at night or take in views from Brisbane to Byron Bay during the day. Enjoy a freshly prepared meal from Seventy7 Cafe and Bar as you spot whales migrating along the eastern coast or as a new storm rolls in. SkyPoint Observation Deck is a must-see for all Gold Coast visitors. With unrivalled 360 degree views from the coast to the hinterland, mini-theatrette and informative feature zones and displays that provide all the information you need to plan your holiday hit list. By night, SkyPoint Observation Deck transforms into a chic, high altitude lounge bar with music every Friday and Saturday night and Sunset Sounds on Sunday afternoon. Enjoy drinks and delicious platters with friends and take in the glittering skyline. SkyPoint Observation Deck is an 18+ venue on Friday and Saturday night from 8pm.

Great view

A great view . But over priced I thought $25. Each was a bit much , you can spend as much time there as you want though.

I have been to a few observatory towers in Australia but this is by far the best! Best time to drop by is before sunset so you can enjoy both day and night views. If you are short on time though, definitely go during the day.

The views from this point are beautiful...we took a trip here around 5pm and the sun was just setting - stunning! Was lovely to see both daylight and night view in one go. Bar is average - had a cocktail and it wasn't anything special. The views are the reason you would make the trip up.

- Nothing extra ordinary if it's just the view you opt for. - Most tourism based cities have similar options for City view. - The skydeck is the best once you take the full package only.
