Sky Tower, Auckland

4.4
Charge your camera for panoramic photographs from Sky Tower, the tallest structure in New Zealand. Auckland's eye-catching landmark, this 328 m (1,076 ft) observation and telecommunications tower rises over the city's business district and remains best known for its unique needle-like design. An elevator whisks you to the top in less than 40 seconds, leaving plenty of time for breathtaking views from one of the observation decks. For an extra kick of adrenaline, take a peek at the city below through the glass-floor panels. If you happen to be here at sunset, you can see the colors changing over the city and enjoy a cocktail at the tower's cafe/bar.

  • The iconic Sky Tower, feature of Auckland's skyline, this impressive structure really stands out. You can go up for spectacular 360 degree views of the city and the harbour. There is also a revolving restaurant at the top where you can enjoy a pleasant meal while admiring the view. Then there is the Sky Fall for the adventurous of those among you.
  • Awesome view! The entire city was visible! Though it was very crowded so couldn't enjoy the views or get nice photos...but almost similar to sky towers around the world. Good enough to give the whole view! The souvenir shop was really good! Affordable prices
