My Mornington day trip ended earlier. So I have time to go to "one of must go" list, Eureka Skydeck, currently the tallest building in Melbourne. Eureka Skydeck is located beside "The Yarra River in Southbank", just a short stroll from my hotel. Only walking distance from where I'm staying, around 20mins I saw the entrance with a big sign. Luckily I didn't miss the entrance pathway as some construction was going on.
finally I'm here ;)
I didn't see anyone else except the two receptionist girl at the counter. Of course I do have to pay a fee to enjoy those fabulous view. The ticket cost AUD$16.50, not so expensive and it's worth every cent that I pay to look out over the most livable city in Australia, Melbourne.
just follow the scrolling LED floor and wall display
Without wasting my time, I took the high speed elevator to the 88th floor of the Eureka Skydeck 88 and enjoying the fantastic 360 degree view over Melbourne. It takes 40 seconds to travel from the ground floor to the 88th floor. The most amazing part, in the elevator it doesn't even seem to be moving.
Enjoying the night view and recognizing famous landmarks and well known Melbourne buildings.
Some shots of the best know buildings and tourist attractions from different perspective. All the famous landmarks are literally just below me.
There is a special viewing platform called "The Edge". A switchable glass cube which slides out from the building . Oh boy oh boy..the world's only "Edge experience" and I'm gonna to experience it.
Cover given and need to wear on my slippers to protect the glasses cleanness
When I stepped into the box, it was spat out the side of the building. The floor is made of glass and I can look down to the street below. A great adventure as I look straight down, seemly just hanging in space with no floor beneath my feet. But warning for ladies, "Do not wear a skirt" ;)
After a few minutes of observing, I was given a chance to have a souvenir photo taken. FYI, we are not allow to take the photo inside The Edge.
