Sydney Tower Eye SKYWALK

Discover Sydney these School Holidays from the city’s highest attraction, the Sydney Tower Eye.

Start with the 4D cinema experience, the engaging film experience taken to the fourth dimension with in-theatre effects including wind, bubbles and water! Then take the lift 250 metres above street level to the Observation Deck and be blown away by the best view in Sydney! The 360 degree Observation Deck includes touchscreens with quirky “Did you know” facts and high powered binoculars to zoom in any area. A nice change from winter, the spring views are exceptional with the shrubbery blooming around the city.

Take the kids on a walk outside of the Sydney Tower on a SKYWALK. Take in the fresh spring air and amazing view at a whole new level – 10 metres above the Observation Deck, that’s 260 metres above street level! Kids ages are 8-15 years.

During the spring school holidays, kids are given a colouring in sheet and pencil pack to draw their view of Sydney, with the owner of the winning drawing to claim the prize of a Family Combo pass, including entry to the brand new SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney, Sydney Tower Eye, Madame Tussauds Sydney and Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary.

These school holidays, Sydney Aquarium will officially reveal the results of a nine-month, $10M overhaul and open its doors as SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium – now home to a spectacular new $5M ocean tunnel and the world’s largest variety of sharks and rays.

Go on a journey of amazing discovery through 14 newly-themed areas including the Shark Walk, the Tropical Bay of Rays, Discovery Rockpool, Mangrove Swamps, South Coast Shipwreck and the new ocean tunnel walk-through, Shark Valley.
