The Sydney Tower is also know as the "AMP Tower",
the "Sydney Centrepoint Tower", or just "Centrepoint".
Ticket prices to the top also include entry to the OzTrek
simulated ride. It's the largest of its type in Australia,
and takes visitors on a virtual reality adventure across Australia's
cultural history and geography.
Tickets also include the free use of the telescopes to zoom
in on important Sydney landmarks. There are also guides tours
on the Observation Deck at no extra cost.
Not only can visitors look out at all the great Sydney landmarks
like the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, but they can
also choose to dine in the two rotating restaurants in the
On level one of the tower there's the "360 Bar and Dining
Room" where visitors can look out over the city while
dining on an a la carte menu, 305 meters above ground. On
level two of the tower there's also an "all you can eat"
buffet menu in the second restaurant.
If looking through the glass at 305 meters up is not enough,
there's an option to step outside with the Sydney Tower Skywalk.
The open air view from the top of the tower places visitors
on a glass viewing platform, rotating 360 degrees around the
tower. It's definitely not an experience for those that are
afraid of heights, but the views are amazing.
