We always make it a point to take overseas visitors to the sky tower just before sunset so we can watch the gorgeous colours across the horizon. I recommend checking on your weather app for the time of sunset when you plan to go up so that you maximise this enchanting time of the evening. Being November it was around... More

On a clear day there are spectacular views. I suggest going early as the queue when I got back down was massive. I pretty much had the place to myself at 10am on a Sunday.

Perhaps the top tourist attraction in Auckland. Views from the top are wonderful. Just get up and down before an 8.1 earthquake hits. Info says it's good for 8.0.

From the top, you get very nice views of the city. Do not forget to take the extra elevator ride to go to the topmost floor. While the space is more cramped, you get better views and the windows have fewer obstructions. Also recommend stopping by the SkyCafé on one of the floors below the observation deck. You can enjoy...

I'd planned to go up the Sky Tower for dusk on what had been a glorious day. As it turned out, by dusk, it was raining and dull, but I went ahead anyway, and am glad I did. The views over the city and harbour are excellent. One qualm is that they have glass portals in the floor around the... More

We would never have spent the money to do this, so I recommend making it a part of a bigger tour. We did really enjoy the views - 360 panorama of Auckland. Apparently it was too windy that day for bungy jumping, so we didn't get a show.
