Press Room



Every city has the jewel of its skyline and for Melbourne, it’s Eureka Tower.

Located on Melbourne’s buzzing Southbank, Eureka Tower is home to the highest observation deck in the southern hemisphere – Melbourne Skydeck.

Perched 88 floors up – that’s 285 metres high – Melbourne Skydeck is a standout attraction for locals and visitors alike.

Granting guests 360-degree views of Melbourne and beyond, it’s the best way to get an appreciation of the size of Melbourne and view all its iconic features at once.

Gaze down upon Federation Square, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Park, and iconic Flinders Street Station. Look beyond to the urban sprawl out to the Dandenong Ranges.

For those who want to reach dizzying heights, The Edge experience will thrill them as they are suspended nearly 300 metres above bustling Melbourne in a transparent cube!

Alternatively, guests can attempt The Plank virtual reality experience, which will have them believing they really are navigating a narrow plank 88 floors above Melbourne.

When all the excitement gets too much, the café and bar provide the perfect antidote to an adrenalin-fueled visit.

A visit to Melbourne Skydeck is an experience to be treasured by young and old, visitors to Melbourne and even the most seasoned Melbournian.
