As Sydney’s tallest structure, the Sydney Tower Eye is an integral part of the city’s skyline. At twice the height of Sydney Harbour Bridge, the 1,000-foot-high (309-meter) tower provides panoramic views that take in the Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach; on a clear day, you can even see as far as the Blue Mountains. The Basics
The Tower Eye is a regular feature of Sydney’s sightseeing tours. Stop just for the 360-degree views on the observation deck, or opt to have lunch, dinner, or drinks in one of two revolving restaurants at the top of the tower (which require advance booking). The tower also offers a 4D IMAX theater and events like yoga classes and silent discos.
Most hop-on hop-off bus tours stop at the landmark. For discounted entry, book a Sydney Pass, which also gives you discounts to other top Sydney attractions.
