Sydney Tower is a true Sydney icon and has been an integral feature of the world famous Sydney skyline for over 30 years.

Sydney Tower is the tallest structure in Sydney, offering unrivalled and breathtaking views across the city.

Construction of Sydney Tower Centrepoint shopping centre began in late 1970 with the first 52 shops opening in 1972. The office component was completed in 1974 and the final stage of the complex, the Sydney Tower, was opened to the public in August 1981.

Ranked as one of the safest buildings in the world, the design has made the tower capable of withstanding earthquakes and extreme wind conditions.

- The golden turret has a capacity of 960 persons and contains two levels of restaurants, a coffee lounge, an Observation Deck, two telecommunication transmission levels and three plant levels.

- Three double deck lifts provide guests’ access to the Observation Deck.

- The 420 windows of the tower are cleaned by a semi – automatic window cleaning machine name ‘Charlie’. ‘Charlie’ recycles and filters 50 litres of water and takes two days to clean all the windows.

- A 162,000 litre water tank, the tower’s primary damping system also acts as a stabiliser for the tower.

- 56 cables stabilise the tower, and if the strands of these cables were laid end to end, they would reach from Sydney to Alice Springs or from Sydney to New Zealand.

- The spire located above the Tower is used for telecommunications and navigation purposes.

- Sydney Tower is the first to see the Sydney dawn, and the last to see its final dusk.

Sydney Tower features 3 attractions: Observation Deck and Oz Trek - these two attractions are both included in the general admission price. Skywalk - this is additional to the general admission charge.
