Sydney Tower, Sydney
Centrepoint Podium Level
Tel: 61 2 9333 9222
Concierge.com's insider take:
It's been dominating the skyline for a quarter of a century, as both the highest point in the city and the highest observation deck in the Southern Hemisphere. And it only takes a 40-second elevator ride to bring you to the top for views that can stretch for more than 50 miles on a clear day. For those that really want to test their fear of heights, there's the SkyWalk, a newly built platform that lets you walk around the tower's golden turret 880 feet above the city. (Just don't say we didn't warn you—it's dizzying.)
Open Sundays to Fridays 9 am to 10:30 pm, Saturdays 9 am to 11:30 pm.
