Sydney Tower Eye and Skywalk

Sydney Tower Eye rises 1,000 feet (309 meters) into the sky, and at twice the height of the Harbour Bridge, it's Sydney’s tallest structure. Designed by Australian architect Donald Crone, construction was finished in 1981, and the tower was soon after opened to the public. If the air is clear, you will be able to see as far as the Blue Mountains, which sit about 50 miles (80 km) away. But even if there is haze in the air, the tower offers a full 360-degree view of Australia’s biggest city, from the golden beaches and the ferries shuttling commuters across the blue harbor to a new perspective of the famous Opera House and the Central Business District below. This high up, Sydney is a jumble of houses and the parks are nothing but tiny green spots. 
If you count yourself as brave enough, you can sign up for the adrenaline-fueled Skywalk. After taking a breath test to prove they aren't under the influence, visitors are suited up in a jumpsuit and harness belt to enjoy the tower's famous view with nothing but glass below and the wind all around.

Practical Info

The Skywalk experience is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., except from October through April when it stays open until 8 p.m. It only shuts down on days of very high winds. The regular observation deck, on the other hand, is open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. To get to the tower, enter the New Westfield Shopping Centre at the corner of Pitt and Market streets and head up to level five. From there, follow the signs.
