Sydney Tower History and Travel Guide

Sydney TowerThe Sydney Tower in the center of the city looks out over Sydney, as far as the eye can see. It's a spectacular way to view Sydney and is the highest building in the state on New South Wales.

Construction of the buildings at the base of the tower began in 1970 and the actual tower was started in 1975. The Sydney Centrepoint Tower was opened to the public in September of 1981.

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 tower!

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.
