Set on the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower, next to the meandering Yarra River, Eureka Skydeck 88 offers the most breathtaking views of Melbourne, Australia. The observation deck allows you to see the whole of Melbourne and its surroundings.

The views are truly panoramic, with floor to ceiling glass facing out in every direction. You can also brave a walk out onto the open-air terrace for a more immersive observation experience.

Eureka Tower in Melbourne in the evening surrounded by city lightsJutting up high above the rest of Melbourne’s skyline, the Eureka Tower Melbourne is one of the tallest buildings in the Southern Hemisphere. Standing at almost 300 meters tall, it’s topped with an incredible observatory.

Eureka Skydeck is situated on the 88th floor of this behemoth and is famously the highest open-to-the-public observation deck south of the equator. From here, the surrounding skyline is dwarfed.

The views from Eureka Skydeck are undoubtedly the best in the city. Panoramic vistas extend in every direction, encapsulating the whole of Melbourne and even the Dandenong Mountain Ranges on clear days.

Not only are these views breathtaking, but they also help you get your bearings. From above, the whole city can easily be mapped and understood. You’ll be able to spot famous landmarks, such as Flinders Street Station, Federation Square, and Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Spend some time wandering around the observation room, which is lined from floor to ceiling with glass. You can make use of the free viewfinders to spot landmarks and find places you’ve visited on your trip to Melbourne.

Next, head to The Terrace. This open-air Melbourne observation deck exposes you to the elements and allows you to soak up the views in a thrilling and breathtaking way.

Lastly, if you select The Edge Experience option, make your way over to The Edge for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

View of the Edge Experience at Eureka Skydeck

The Eureka Tower breaks yet another Southern Hemisphere record, with the fastest elevator. The journey up to Eureka Skydeck involves riding an elevator that hoists you up 88 floors in under 40 seconds.

Traveler’s Tip: If you get a chance during your trip to Melbourne, we would highly recommend riding the Puffing Billy steam train through the beautiful Dandenong Ranges.

Best Time to Go

A ticket to Eureka Skydeck allows you to enter anytime during operating hours. Which begs the question, when is the best time to visit?

Any time is a good time to head up, but we think the best time you could visit is just a bit before sunset. That way, you’ll get enough daylight to spot landmarks and see the city. But you’ll also get warm golden hour light and spectacular sunset views as the city lights start to twinkle.

    It a must to visit Eureka Skydeck 88! The best time to visit is before sunset and stay till nighttime when all the city lights were lighted up. You will experience 2 different view of the landscape at the Skydeck 88.

    I really enjoyed going up to the 88th floor in Eureka and looking out on Melbourne! I know a lot of cities have these high floor observation decks. But Eureka was cool and gave you a nice viewing of the city from high above. I really enjoyed hanging out here for an hour or so!

    The views were amazing but the edge was a waste of money. Wish I didn't do it now. The girl said it will move but I don't think it moved anywhere
