Rising a sheer 230 meters into the sky, SkyPoint is one of the Gold Coast's most popular attractions and has become a must see destination for locals and visitors alike. It provides stunning 360 degree panoramic views that stretch from the surf to the hinterland and beyond and provides the perfect location for visitors to experience the shimmering Gold Coast skyline at night or take in views from Brisbane to Byron Bay during the day. Enjoy a freshly prepared meal from Seventy7 Cafe and Bar as you spot whales migrating along the eastern coast or as a new storm rolls in. SkyPoint Observation Deck is a must-see for all Gold Coast visitors. With unrivalled 360 degree views from the coast to the hinterland, mini-theatrette and informative feature zones and displays that provide all the information you need to plan your holiday hit list. By night, SkyPoint Observation Deck transforms into a chic, high altitude lounge bar with music every Friday and Saturday night and Sunset Sounds on Sunday afternoon.

Went there in morning for the buffet breakfast. It was nice sunny morning. We had great views of the city and sea. The breakfast was amazing. Huge variety and everything delicious.

Make this your first point of call when arriving at the Gold Coast. Then go to the beach. It'll highlight the uniqueness of this holiday destination.

Amazing views, definitely recommend. I've been there multiple times. I'd recommend arriving a bit before sunset and leaving after it. That way you can experience both, how GC looks at day time and in the dark with all the city lights.

Some beautiful views, the kids saw some whales and we managed to see the sun setting. If we visit again, we'll pay the extra to climb the outside part

Visited the observation deck early on the day, so we're lucky there was not much people yet. Timing is essential, so that the sky doesn't cover the view if rainy or gloomy. Overall, I enjoyed the view!

There is no doubt the views are spectacular. We thought the cost to go up to the Observation Deck at $25.00 each was a bit on the pricey side. When we arrived there were dirty dishes on most of the tables, obviously left from people...More
