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.

We bought the day/night ticket using Gold Coast travel guide's coupon to save some money. This is A 360° deck where we admired the beauty of the city from different angles as well as the immensity of the sea. This is good place to have drink in the heights or simply have relax moment looking around.

Rather than just go and take in the views, we decided that having the buffet breakfast at the same time was a good deal. After all, how many times have you gone to an observation area, had a quick stroll around and left all in the space of about 30 minutes? The breakfast is a good way to sit, relax... More

You must go just before it gets dark. That way you get to see in daytime and night! It is hard to describe, you must see for yourself. 10$ after 8 pm if on a budget.

Went up here with the intention treating my friend to high tea, but didn't bother. The restaurant is more like a cafe.. we went to the Versace Hotel instead. Amazing.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some feedback about your visit to SkyPoint. It is disappointing to hear you did not join us for high tea,. It really is an amazing spot to sit back and enjoy the views and a bite to eat. More
