Conveniently located in the heart of the city’s central business district the Eureka Skydeck is easily accessible for all tourists visiting the various attractions in and around the great city of Melbourne. Situated just at the back of the Southbank promenade midway between Crown Casino and the Princess Bridge the structure is located in between two bridges and is literally minutes away from Federation Square.
Occupying the scenic environs of the southern shores of Yarra River the Eureka Skydeck offers guests 360 degree, unhindered views of Victoria’s capital. Famed as the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere this state-of-the art Skydeck is accessible to visitors via the speedy elevators in the building’s ground floor which takes one to the 88th floor where the observation platform is located.
Once visitors are up on the Skydeck they will get the opportunity to experience all of Melbourne’s cultural and day to day exchanges with a wide range of Melbourne sound effects playing in the background. From the maddening shouts of fans cheering the hometown football team to the commentators remarking on local horse races the overall viewing atmosphere at the Skydeck is enhanced by these true-to life audio recordings. The Edge is of course the venue’s prime attraction as this 3 meter glass cube that juts out from the tower lets visitors experience the mammoth height of their location with startling reality. Suspended above nearly 300m in the air in a transparent cube this novel addition to the Melbourne Observation Deck is a firm favourite among seasoned visitors and locals alike.
Those who are more faint of heart however can enjoy the sights from the indoor viewing area with large glass windows while visitors can also take in the stunning views from the outdoor terrace at the venue which also houses a canteen with delectable take away items.
