Spring into school holiday fun as a Skydeck Explorer!

Beat the school holiday blues from September 23 – October 8 and enjoy free explorer-themed activities at Eureka Skydeck all day during the Victorian spring school holidays.

All Eureka Skydeck Explorers will receive a FREE Skydeck Scratchy Quiz and a Crayola Color Alive pack for every lucky quiz winner to continue the school holiday fun at home.

For those who dare, the world’s only Edge experience is also available at Eureka Skydeck. Guests will be suspended 285m above ground in a 3m by 3m transparent glass cube, sliding out of the building to give a 360 degree view of Melbourne and beyond.

And for those looking for the ultimate virtual experience, take part in Eureka Skydeck’s current green screen activation, VERTIGO. The specially constructed VERTIGO set allows guests to have their photo taken with the illusion they’re falling through the glass floor of the Edge and are trying to hold on for dear life, 285 metres above the streets of Melbourne.

Patrons can get creative and capture their own unique The Walk Experience photo. A 9” x 6” photograph, including a digital copy, will ensure each guests’ attempt to capture the most realistic and compelling shot of their daring feat is ready to share on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Located beside the Yarra River in Southbank and open from 10am – 10pm daily, Eureka Skydeck is one of Melbourne’s most spectacular tourist destinations and a top spot to take the family to during the school holidays.

The Walk and Edge experience will cost patrons between $8 - $15, plus entry to Eureka Skydeck.

About Eureka Skydeck:

Eureka Skydeck is the highest public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere. Located on the 88th floor of Eureka Tower, the observation deck provides patrons with 360 degree floor-to-ceiling views of Melbourne and beyond. During the school holidays guests will also be able to take full advantage of:

  • The Outdoor Terrace - Enclosed by a wire grid, the Outdoor Terrace exposes guests to the elements on Level 88. The Terrace is right next to the Edge, so family and friends can view those inside.
