City Sights Kids Activities Melbourne
Look up! No, look down! Get your tickets at the bottom of the Eureka Skydeck then get set to roll...erm, shoot to the top - all 88 levels! Pick a pleasant day as Eureka Skydeck provides a vantage point with the most stunning 360-degree views of Melbourne.
When you've zoomed to the 88th floor, take a peak through one of the landmark viewfinders (some are at kid-friendly height) then play a guessing game to find all your family-friendly sights from up high. The MCG, Fed Square, the Melbourne Star, Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium...they're all there!
There is an observation deck that has an outside caged area and if you dare book a ticket for the 'Edge Experience'. If you have the nerve go out on the EDGE, the glass box that travels outside the building and gives a feeling of being suspended above the ground - 3 metres out from the building - with you in it - suspended almost 300 metres above the ground! Can you imagine?
For a bit of fun purchase a postcard from the gift shop to send to your cousins, grandparents, friends etc and post it from the 'highest postbox' in Australia.
If you're feeling peckish the cafe, Kiosk 88, can sort you out with a takeaway cuppa, snacks or even icecream.
All in all don't miss this landmark tourist attraction and cure that fear of heights in an instant!
As the only observation desk in the world with ‘The Edge’ – a glass cube which projects 3 metres out from the building, suspending people 300 metres above the ground – and magnificent 360 degree, floor-to-ceiling views encompassing Melbourne city, this one-of-a-kind tourist attraction will welcome the 8th year of operation like it does its visitors.
Since opening its doors to the public in 2007, Eureka Skydeck has welcomed more than 4.8 million visitors to the top, with the Eureka Skydeck lifts having travelled 1.2 million times to get them there; a distance that’s 42,403 kilometres shy of reaching the moon!
