Australia is a nation with many wonders, both natural and man-made, and one of the most notable in the latter category is the Eureka Tower, which is one of the tallest in the world.
The Eureka Tower is the 15th tallest residential building in the world. It was designed by Fender Katsadalis Architects and built by Grocon, both of which are Australian firms.
The striking design of the tower was inspired by the Eureka Stockade, which involved a group of Australian gold-miners launching a rebellion against the rule of the United Kingdom.

This is the observation deck which occupies the entire 88th floor of the tower. There are thirty viewfinders that help visitors identify some of the area’s most iconic landmarks. It also the highest observation platform in within a building in the southern hemisphere.
This is a glass cube that projects around 10 feet out of the building. In a truly exhilarating fashion, the cube only becomes transparent once it extends away from the building. If you find yourself vacationing in one of the many hotels in Southbank Melbourne such as the likes of WRAP on Southbank, then this is definitely an essential experience.
