For a bird's-eye view of the coast, go up to SkyPoint Observation Deck, located 230 m (750 ft) above ground. If you want to try something more daring, go for the SkyPoint Climb, which involves an open-air walk on the top of the iconic Q1 building and lasts 90 minutes. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Gold Coast holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the SkyPoint Observation Deck and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
SkyPoint Observation Deck reviews
Our visit to SkyPoint was as part of a deal we had with our trip to the Gold Coast. Being scared of heights I will admit that if it was not included in our trip we would not have gone. Having said... more »
Visited sky point for sunset views, we weren’t let down. You could see right up and down the coast and then we sat down with a bottle of wine to watch the sun go down. Loved it. more »
Beautiful afternoon having a lazy lunch, fun sundae while playing Connect 4 and relaxing time on the couches! Lunch was a generous serving, fresh and delicious. We did the sunrise Tower climb that morning and enjoyed the complimentary Observation deck pass (included 20% off lunch). Highly recommend the tower climb, it was so much fun even with butterflies in my tummy! The views from the Observatory of the Pacific Ocean and the inland canals and islands are spectacular. We walked around and read our books on the couches. Great way to spend the morning or afternoon, well worth a visit and place to recharge while enjoying amazing vistas. PS. Look up at the ceiling of the elevator as you ride up to the 77th floor, very cool!!!!
Definitely worth a visit. Good to catch the views of the Gold Coast from 77 floors up. Has a restaurant and bar as well. Wouldn't go more than once or twice type of thing but it does have a breathtaking 360 degree view. They also have a climb tour which allows you to climb the steps that are above the observation deck and that lead up to the spire. The climb is an experience that needs to be had. It will suit people who are not too afraid to get out of their comfort zone. The height achieved is an addition 40 or so metres above the observation deck from memory. The observation deck good for tourists and kids.
