Sydney Tower
Sydney Tower Eye, Market St

Take the express lift to Sydney Tower Eye on Level 5. Located in the city's tallest structure Sydney Tower, you'll start your experience with the 4D Cinema Experience, taking a 3D experience to the fourth dimension with wind, water and bubble effects. It's the first ever produced in Australia! Then take the lift up 250 metres to the Observation Deck. Be wowed by the views from the 360 Observation Deck - featuring interactive touchscreens and high-powered binoculars. From here you can see as far as 80km.

Take it a step further and do a SKYWALK where you'll walk around the entire building, 260 m above street level!
