Even if you aren’t one for heights, the Eureka Skydeck is a must-do, as one of the best views of Melbourne around.
It is Melbourne’s tallest building, jutting up 297 metres to make the tower 88 glorious floors. On the 88th, Melbourne offer’s Eureka’s Skydeck, a 360-degree lookout point where visitors can see the inner city to all the way out to the region’s coastline.
Thankfully, you don’t have to trek up 297 metres of stairs to reach the Skydeck, but instead can hop on the elevator. It is known as the quickest elevator in the southern hemisphere, taking only one second to go up 9 metres, and a total 38 seconds to zip from the bottom to the 88th floor.
For the thrill-seekers, skip the roller coasters and head straight to the Skydeck, with the Edge being an adrenaline-inducing experience. Featuring a large glass cage that is slowly suspended out of the tower, hovering nearly 300 meters over Melbourne with only a thick layer of the glass holding you. The entire cage is glass, giving you both terrifying and incredible views of the city. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience, as you won’t soon forget it!

You’ll be walking along the safe carpet area while you visually feel strong winds or high-flying birds make balancing even harder.
