Sky Tower

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by Guanilo on August 13, 2007

The Sky Tower rises some three hundred meters from the center of Auckland (which I believe makes it the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere). There is a restaurant or two at the top, as well as an observation deck. Throw in a way up and down the tower on the outside, and you've got an interesting experience.

Outside? Yes, you can climb the outside of the tower (the Vertigo Climb) and then do a wire guided base jump/controlled fall from about halfway up the tower. Neither of us were either brave or drunk enough to try, though.

In any case, if you've got the extra change on hand ($20 US per adult), the views are rather commanding.
