Sydney Tower Eye

100 Market St, Sydney, New South Wales, 2000

The Basics

The Tower Eye is a regular feature of Sydney’s sightseeing tours. Stop just for the 360-degree views on the observation deck, or opt to have lunch, dinner, or drinks in one of two revolving restaurants at the top of the tower (which require advance booking). The tower also offers a 4D IMAX theater and events like yoga classes and silent discos.

Most hop-on hop-off bus tours stop at the landmark. For discounted entry, book a Sydney Pass, which also gives you discounts to other top Sydney attractions.

Great day out with the kids
We went to Wild Life Zoo and Sea Life Aquarium with friends and our children. The kids loved it as they got to get up close and see the animals.

Skip the line does exactly what it says in the tin. The staff were very observant of this and ensured that I was speedily dealt with. The view from the tower is impressive you can see the Bridge and Opera House just. Highly recommended.

Sydney Attractions Pass: SEA LIFE Aquarium, Sydney Tower Eye, WILD LIFE Zoo and Madame Tussauds
I chose the two tour option from this tour package. I chose the SeaLife Aquarium and Madame Tussaud’s. I was not disappointed with either choice. I always take pictures and both were excellent in person and on camera. The pictures from Madame looked so real you would have thought I actually took pictures of the real live actor .. in person. Pictures taken in the aquarium of different fish was just as amazing. You should see the pictures of the sting rays. Loved this selection on the tour choice.

Sydney Tower Eye Ticket
This is a very "touristy" thing to do, but wanted to go up The Eye to see a nice sunset / evening view of surrounding Sydney. Yes, there is one big building blocking the best view of the harbour, but it is still so breathtaking to see a major city from high above, especially at night. Pictures are taken of you in front of a green screen and they put you in scenes ranging in front of the Opera House and Bridge to a very funny photo of you in the palm of "King Koala" hanging on to the Tower Tower just like King Kong! At the end of your visit, they try and sell you a photo book (can't remember the price)... we din;t go for that.. then offered 1 picture for like $20 or $25... we didn't go for that... but received a code to go online (within a week) and get the photos for like $10. Do that and not buy the book, unless you want to, We did buy the photo book on our Opera House visit, but we planned to and that is just the most iconic building in Sydney. Overall, it's just going up a tower and looking around, but it was a nice visit, with friend, helpful workers and a nice view!

SEA LIFE so-so, WILD LIFE wonderful

Sydney Attractions Pass: SEA LIFE Aquarium, Sydney Tower Eye, WILD LIFE Zoo and Madame Tussauds
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium did have a really nice penguin excursion--a little boat ride (bring your jacket!) through a refrigerated penguinarium where the king penguins are stars of the show. It was a lot of fun watching them mug for the visitors while the keepers were trying to get them to step on a scale. The penguins alone were worth about half of the admission price, but think hard about whether you really want to spend the other half just to see them. The rest of the aquarium is the sort of stuff you could see anywhere (with the possible exception of rescued dugong Pig). But WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo was worth every penny. They have every Australian animal you can think of, and the animals are very easy to view and photograph. (Only the Tazzie devil was hiding.) Adults who are quiet and well-behaved may get invited behind the scenes for an even closer look. I had an amazing experience with some wallabies which cost me nothing extra. Although (or possibly because) it is small, WILD LIFE gives you a better look at Australia's wild life than the much posher Toranga Zoo across the harbour.
