Eureka Skydeck celebrates 12th birthday with $12 tickets

Standing as the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere and one of Melbourne city’s must-see attractions, the iconic Eureka Skydeck will celebrate its 12th birthday on May 15.
To help commemorate another impressive milestone, Eureka Skydeck will offer visitors special $12 adult, children and concession admission tickets over 48 hours.

Available for purchase via the Eureka Skydeck website from Wednesday 15th to Thursday 16th of May, the special admission tickets will give visitors the chance to live life on the edge and help celebrate another year with the city’s most impressive tourist attraction.

As the only observation deck in the world with ‘The Edge’ – a glass cube that projects 3 metres out from the building, suspending people 300 metres above the ground – and magnificent 360-degree, floor-to-ceiling views, Eureka Skydeck has welcomed the 12th year of operation like it does its visitors.

Located on the southern banks of the Yarra River, Eureka Skydeck is perfectly primed as Melbourne’s tourism hot spot. During its 12 years of operation, Skydeck has hosted over 1,000 proposals, roasted over 290,000 barista-made coffees, enlightened over 1.8 million people from over 232 nationalities with the glass-shattering Edge experience, welcomed a visit from King Kong himself and watched an expert high wire artist edge his way out into the open air from one point of the iconic Eureka Tower to the other.

Continuing to thrive as a ‘must-see’ attraction, the 88 level, 3,680 step, 38 second lift journey to the top – which has travelled over 195,046km across eleven years or nearly five times around the world – rewards viewers with skyline views and impeccable backdrop scenery; an obvious ‘must-do’ for any local visitor.

Equipped with 30 viewfinders, every visitor can soak up some of Australia’s finest scenery encompassing such sights as Port Phillip Bay, the Docklands, Melbourne’s sporting precinct and everything in between.

Weighing in at over 200 million kilograms and embellished with 24 carats of gold, the award-winning architecture of Eureka Tower is striking enough for those who can’t handle the intensity of the ‘Edge’ experience.

Tickets are valid for 6 months from the date of purchase and redeemable anytime during that 6-month period. The tickets will be available for purchase both days, but ONLY on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th May 2019 and ONLY online.A 50c booking fee per transaction applies with a maximum of 10 tickets per transaction.
