Lovely staff - stunning view as you can imagine !
I would have enjoyed if I was able to read information on what I was viewing however when I asked a staff member in the cafe , he wasn’t able to give me any assistance . Possibly that was available on the actual viewing platform - I wanted to have a coffee whilst enjoying the view .
The tower is stunning both day & night ✨

Beautiful views, no waiting in line.

The photo that was taken as you enter however felt quite rushed (considering there was nobody in front or behind us for the line) which resulted in a bad photo.

Would still recommend as a must do at least once.

Didn't realize the hours were reduced to close at 6pm. We got there just before 5pm. Just 1 person at the counter and he had his hands full with a large group. By the time we got up we had just around 50mins before they closed. The Cafe too was a little underwhelming. I remember it to be flashier. Last visit though was years ago. Anyways what was supposed to be a relaxing coffee (and ice-cream for my son) with a view turned out to be a panicky "hurry up they are about to close" experience.

Skytower – brilliant! When we have visitors from overseas, visit the Main Observation Level, dizzying height of 186 metre from ground-level; an adrenaline adventure: bungy skyjump and Skywalk, WETA workshop is also there. Orbit 360, revolving restaurant where views are stunning, meals divine. Fortuna buffet restaurant or any one of the other establishments in SkyCity, offer different cuisine choices. Cool Christmas Lights, by Federal Street; spectacular NYE Fireworks, seen from around the city, across the Waitemata to North Shore, Tamaki Drive. We'll visit again soon.

The view from the restaurant at the top is stunning and i love how you slowly rotate round as you eat dinner. Food was yum last time we went (in march years ago) and how you could take photos on the platforms and stand on the glass that looks right down to the ground! scary but so cool.

We did this as part of the better value Sky Tower and All Blacks experience combo. You do need to pick your time. We had amazing views in every direction, but the next morning the tower was heavily cloaked in fog and I doubt it would have even been possible to see the ground!
It was good to go up to level 60 and look down on the wider level 51 first stopped at. From level 60 we saw people stepping off for the jump, then when back at level 51 it was easier for the kids to understand the people dropping past the window had just stepped off from the roof. Watching the live feed of people preparing to jump kept the kids entertained.

This is the symbol of Auckland and the first thing to visit. It gives you a fantastic panoramic glance of one of the most liveable cities in the world!

Auckland is stunning to see from this height but $32 adult 😏 wouldn’t eat at the cafe unless you want your food all at different times and staff really not able to cope with a half empty cafe
