  • Skywalk is a unique high-altitude adventure on
    top of Sydney Tower. At 268meters (879 feet)
    above Sydney, Skywalk takes you on an
    exhilarating outdoor walk at the roof of the
    city, double the height of Sydney Harbor Bridge.

    safety-harnessed to external walkways, Skywalk
    guests experience a buzz unmatched by any other

    you venture across the glass-floored viewing
    platform for 360-degree views over glittering
    Sydney and beyond.
