56 cables help to stabilize the tower, which is the tallest structure in Sydney at 305 meters above street level. Your admission ticket is good for both the Observation Deck and the Skytour. The elevators zip you up to the top of Sydney Tower in about forty seconds. The crowning turret contains the Observation Deck (250 meters above street level) and Skytour, restaurants and cafes, and private areas for telecommunications and other assorted technical activities.
The 420 windows of the tower allow for unparalleled panoramic views of Sydney and its surroundings. It is great to just walk around the indoor Observation Deck and name all the spectacular landmarks you can spot in the distance. It is not easy to take photos because of the glare and the glass, though it is fun trying. A good time to visit is before sunset so you can see Sydney by day and by night.
I did not have time to visit the Skytour, but it is advertised as a "Great Australian Expedition", some sort of multimedia extravaganza I am sure. I prefer to spend my time staring out at the real beauty of the city, although if I had barrels of extra time I may have enjoyed this "amazing virtual ride through time".
