Skydeck Experience

Created to reach for the sky, nothing you have ever experienced will prepare you for the awe inspiring view of Melbourne from the Southern Hemisphere's highest viewing platform.

This video is an excerpt from the Eureka Skydeck DVD, available at the online gift shop.

What to expect from your Eureka Skydeck Experience

  • The best views of Melbourne, anywhere.

    Located on the southern banks of the Yarra river, Eureka is perfectly positioned for 360 degree, floor-to-ceiling views encompassing Melbourne's CBD, sports precinct, Port Phillip Bay, Docklands and everything in between. Come by day for brilliant views extending to the Dandenong ranges, and by night to see the spectacular Melbourne skyline nightscape (get a Sun & Stars pass to see it all!).

  • The Worlds only Edge Experience!

    Skydeck 88 is the only observation deck in the world that can thrill you with 'The Edge' - a glass cube which projects 3 metres out from the building - with you in it - suspended almost 300 metres above the ground!

    You will be able to purchase a souvenir photo of you actually in 'The Edge' from our Edge Shop on Level 88. See more about the Edge…

  • The Terrace

    Step through the air-lock onto 'The Terrace' and expose yourself to the outside elements almost 300 metres above the ground. Not for the feint hearted (a trip to the terrace usually involves high winds), visitors are rewarded with a great look at The Edge in action, reflection-free views of Port Phillip Bay and the Sporting precinct and free high powered binoculars.

  • Key Landmark Viewfinders

    Pinpoint key landmarks with our 30 view finders placed around the Skydeck floor. We even have 'kid-friendly' heights for our smaller visitors!

  • Sights & Sounds

    A specially composed soundscape designed to provide ambient sounds relevant to the direction the visitor is looking, for example F1 engine noise as the viewer looks at the Grand Prix circuit around Albert Park Lake. The soundscape noises will also move around the floor, with sensors detecting where people are standing.
    A unique system of 'blades' has been designed for the ceiling which can match the sky's appearance, ie white clouds, blue sky, lightning or thunderstorm effects. The combination of using soundscapes and lightscapes in this way at Eureka Skydeck is unique

  • iPhone Audio Tour

  • Southern Hemispheres Fastest lifts

    After 'The Edge' experience you may need to take a break and grab a takeaway coffee, soft drinks, ice-cream, snacks and a fabulous view to go with it!
