One of the first things we did in Melbourne (apart from the obligatory dipping of our toes in the Southern Ocean) was climb The Eureka Skydeck
When I say ‘climbed’ I mean we took the fastest lift in the Southern Hemisphere on a 40 second journey to the 88th floor! If we had gone to New Zealand earlier in our holiday we might have considered climbing the 300m building via the steps, but luckily the thought never crossed our minds and we were eager to experience a 40 second lift ride!
We picked a perfect day to go to the Skydeck,which is the highest public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere, although my uncle told me that most days are bright and sunny in Melbourne!
They have an outdoor Terrace which was EXTREMELY windy, but the photos I took from there were clearer because there wasn’t any glass reflection
We decided against ‘The Edge’ A completely glass cube that projects 3 meters out of the building 300m up. I don’t think my vertigo could have handled it!! (anyway there was a 45 minute queue!) We decided to have coffee instead 🙂
