Like the new Grand Canyon version, Sydney Tower’s Skywalk enables thrillseekers to stand on see-through glass platforms suspended over the edge of the tower’s golden turret.
Offering a birds-eye view of man-made canyons of steel, glass and bustling streets a quarter of a kilometre below and a spectacular vista over one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Sydney Tower’s Skywalk continues to attract a growing number of international, interstate and local visitors.
Budding Skywalkers can now take advantage of new mid-year specials at Sydney Tower. Until September 30, 2007, Skywalks are available from $89 per adult and $73 for children (minimum age 10) including a special certificate of achievement. Family passes start from $174.50 for one adult and two children.
Opened in October 2005, the 90-minute guided walk across Sydney’s bulging skyline provides unbeatable, open-air views over Sydney Harbour and towards the Blue Mountains and Central Coast more than 100km away.
Located 260m above Sydney’s streets – twice the height of Sydney Harbour Bridge – the $6 million Skywalk attraction requires daredevils to dress in protective clothing before being secured to safety rails via sliding cables. Skywalkers are then guided along two levels of purpose-built walkways and out onto the moving glass platforms stretching over the tower’s edge.
Romantic sunset walks are the most popular Skywalk tours, with Sydney’s loftiest rooftop a popular spot for marriage proposals.
And yes, there really is a Skywalker guide named Luke!
