About this location...

Melbourne's Eureka Tower is located in South Bank, right near the Crown Casino and is one of Melbourne's most recognisable buildings. I must admit at this point, that I am Sydney-sider and so experienced this location as a tourist, so this probably added to my experience, but I truly believe this is one of the most spectacular views you will ever lay eyes on in urban Australia, and I have had the privilege through my job of visiting the rooftops of several of Sydney's tallest buildings.

At nearly 300m from the ground, the Skydeck on level 88 is open until 10pm most days and entry is $18 for adults. They welcome cameras and tripods, and I had no problems setting my tripod up for over an hour. If you plan to visit for sunrise, I would advise getting a spot 20 mins before, as small crowds gathered behind me as the sun began to set on my chosen vantage point.

Speaking of view points, the Skydeck gives you 360 degrees of Melbourne, so while my South-Westerly view was ideal for sunset, others may work better at other times of the day. As you will see in the camera section, you will need to take measures to shoot through the glass windows.

As a side-note, there is a licensed bar with some snacks available on Level 88, as well as a tourist shop and the "Edge Experience" which is an extra cost.

My rating of 8 of 10 is purely because of the difficulty level of capturing the images I set out for, on location alone, this is a 10 out of 10. A must do for anyone visiting or living in Melbourne!
