To go in costs between AU$10 and AU$12. The tour guides there are very helpful to everyone who enters. I went inside the lift and there I was going 55 floors up! It takes about 20 to 30 seconds to get to the top. At some point, my ears did pop, but I wasn’t too worried about it!
I got at the top and I stood there in shock -- the view was amazing! You could see the whole of Melbourne! It offers you a 360-degree view of the whole of the city. The people from up there were like dots moving around and the cars were just tiny. Because it was such a clear day, you could see (with the binoculars) as far as Brisbane. Also, you will find available a restaurant, boutique bar, kiosk, and, of course, souvenirs. Overall, I wouldn’t suggest it to people who are afraid of heights because it’s VERY high.

The popular observation deck boasts of a 360 degrees view of the city. For a small fee (about AU$12 for adults and AU$7 for children), you get a 20-minute video show called 'Melbourne The Living City', binoculars for viewing, and a computer viewing system.
Other than amazing views of the city, you can also stop by a souvenir shop that even sells postcards and local stamps so you can send greetings to your loved ones with an official Rialto Towers mark. Yes, there's even a postbox to drop your mail in. There is also a small cafe/restaurant where you can have coffee or a meal while enjoying the views.
For more information, visit the Rialto Towers Observation Deck web site.

It has a nice view, particularly at twilight, as the sky starts to darken and the city lights up. It's better to go around the city prior to going up here so that you can recognize the sites you've already visited.We ordered food and drinks there, but we didn’t need dessert for $7.50, which was overkill.Afterwards, we rode back down on the elevator, where there's a gift shop with things we don't need, and watched a presentation nearby before leaving.Admission: adults are $12.50, children are $7, and a family (two adults and up to four children between the ages of 4 and 15) is $35.Phone: +61 3 9614 5888, Fax +61 3 9629 3936 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
