Lonely Planet review

The impossible-to-miss Sky Tower looks like a giant hypodermic giving a fix to the heavens. Spectacular lighting renders it space-age at night and the colours change for special events. At 328m it is the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere. A lift takes you up to the observation decks in 40 stomach-lurching seconds; look down through the glass floor panels if you’re after an extra kick. It costs $3 extra to catch the skyway lift to the ultimate viewing level. Late afternoon is a good time to go up: you can sip a beverage in the Sky Lounge as the sun sets. Sky Tower is also home to the SkyWalk and SkyJump . The tower is the best part of the SkyCity complex, a tacky 24-hour casino with ritzy restaurants, cafes, bars, theatres and hotels.
