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.
The day we went the staff all seemed doped out. I kid you not! The tower is in dire need of a renovation. And it would be fairly difficult for trourists to find the entrance. A little overpriced for the ageing monstocity that it is. But unfortunately, a must do for any visit to sydney. Before you go lower your expectations.
Yes, worth going up for the beautiful Harbour views, but it is VERY expensive (would be a killer for a family). There are free tour guides who willing answer questions and tell you what you are looking at. Worth standing near them!
I have been to the center point tower twice to dine, but was unimpressed with the buffett, especially for the price. The views are absolutely amazing ........ especially at night. I recommend going to the top for the site seeing, but skip the dinner and dine elsewhere. There are plenty of places to eat in sydney.
This was a terrible way to spend an anniversary! We visited the buffet for dinner and althouh the views were enjoyable the majority of the food was awful, service well below average, and there was an awful musky-fishy smell blanketing the entire floor!
For a Monday night, the waiting ime was unacceptable. Queues to the acutal buffet table were up to 10 minutes at one stage.
Maybe the alacarte menu would be the better option.
The view was great but the food was dreadful. It is terribly overpriced. We were asked to leave our table as other diners were apparently waiting but at no time were we told that a time limit applied. The man who told us to leave used no please or thank you and when we said that at no time had anyone indicated we would have to be vacanted by a certain time he just walked away. The other staff were at least pleasant but we had noticed this person "pacing" around the restaurant throughout the night. We had been there for less than 1 and 1/2 hours.
Visited the tower in Oct 2003. Excellant all round. coming back for more 11th to 14th November 2005. Only prob we have is how to book a resavation from uk mainland! If you could tell us how that would be smashing.

The AMP tower is a really trendy look out tower offering the best views of sydney and its harbour in combination with a wonderful fine dinning experience is just one the great treats the three decks of AMP tower have to offer apart from some really great shops.
Other than the view was great, the buffet restaurant was by far the worst place i've ever been!
Dont even get me started with the overcharged prepay (deposit required before booking) price, bad atmosphere, musty smell, prison like serving style, disgusting over cooked rubber tasting food, extremely rude staff...etcetc after the dinner my entire family felt sick to the stomach up till the next morning!
Its a disgrace to us Sydney people!
