Far above the maddening crowds, Sydney Tower or AMP Tower has 360 degrees of Sydney's best views. It takes just 40 seconds for the double-decker lifts to reach the 304-meter summit. At 260 meters, the glass skywalk provides panoramic views of the city. This revolving vantage point was opened to public in 2005.
Took family from UK to the great Centrepoint Tower restaurant - won't be doing that again! Limited food choice, rubbish on the floor and soo expensive.
By all means visit viewing tower but take your friends to Cockle Bay / Darling Harbour for a meal and enjoy the city lights from there!
We went with our 2 teens on a bright, sunny, winter morning. Views were fabulous. We enjoyed taking photos and getting oriented to the city. OzTrek was a fun, high-tech travelogue experience. I would have gone back on our last night for a night view, but (silly me) I threw away our tickets. We got the Discovery tickets that let us in to Sydney Tower, Aquarium, and Wildlife World; we could have returned to each site if we'd had time (and I had kept the tickets.)
Alright for 20 minutes while you take pictures but unless you want to eat at the cafe theres no reason to stay for long, making it fairly expensive. Also, pointless on rainy days as you may not see that far. Having said that, you dont need climbing gear like the bridgeclimb, you can take your own camera and its higher than the crappy bridge pylon or other places. Also has its own souvenir shop but theres millions of them in sydney anyway.
I visited the AMP tower on a Sunday morning when it was not very crowded. The basic ticket includes two tourist "rides" that provide information on Australia. I thought these were mostly developed for children and didn't hold much appeal for adults. You will go through security and then wait in line to take the elevator to the top of the tower. Once there, you can spend as much time as you like and there are a number of guides to help you interpret all the buildings you will see. Although a bit pricey, I was glad that I took the time to visit and would recommend others to do the same.
I love Sydney as a place and to see it from AMP Tower was magical. My Aunty, who lives in Randwick, said that if i thought the viewing level was good, then I should dine in the revolving restaraunt. If you do book in and have a meal, one piece of advice, remember where your table is! Confused me when i went for my food, turned around and my table had revolved to the other side. Strange but funny.
Definately recommend visiting if you have the chance.
It was a quite a expensive but it had the most magnificent sight. You could see all the cars,buildings and the all looked like miniture toys!
There wasn't a lot of variety in the food also there was a small space.
I cannot believe that so called "buffet" was being served with customers treated like prisoners that everyone had to wait in line to get food dumped into their plates.
The food tasted OK, but the variety is like normal food court with mix of everything that you can imagine. Felt that the only way to comfort myself of paying that amount of money to eat the food was because of the view...
I wouldn't recommend anyone to dine in that place.
