Eureka Skydeck: Best Place for Panoramic Melbourne Skyline

Eureka Skydeck will be one of your favourite spots if you love watching skyline of different cities while travelling. Regardless it’s climbing to the top of a mountain or taking stairs to the top of a tower, I always seize every opportunity that provides a better angle of the landscape. Hence, when I was given the Eureka Skydeck 88 discount voucher, of course I will not miss the chance on going to this fantastic place which ranks as the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere, I knew it was a view I couldn’t miss.

The entire floor is full of thick and reassuring glass which allows you to see the entire city. From here, your could see the the coast of the Mornington Peninsula, Port Phillip Bay and mountains in the distance. Around the room, thirty viewfinders (and a few free binoculars) were positioned by the windows, identifying the many landmarks below us.

If you want a better shot without any reflection (and of course you’re not afraid of heights) I highly recommend you to go out to the outdoor terrace! If you’re going there during chilly weather, make sure you zip up your jacket as it can be FREEZING out there due to the heights and wind!

If you’re a sunset lover, I suggest you to check when the sun sets and go up there an hour before, so you could catch different views up there! This is the shot I took when the sun begins to set a little.

If you’re hungry while waiting the sunset, there is a bar that sells snacks and drinks. Grab yourself a cup of hot coffee and muffin and soak up the breathtaking views!

These shots are taken when the sun is below the horizon. Twilight is really a gorgeous brief moment. You can still some light visible in the sky due to sunlight scattering off the atmosphere.

And yes we waited until the dark has completely swallowed the entire city and the city is light up with lights (I can say all these views are worth that $20 we spent on the ticket)!
