On Monday, my daughter and I visited Sydney Tower Eye, which is the tallest point in Sydney and offers such an expansive view of this sprawling city, that you can see about 80 kilometres away in all directions.
Construction of the Sydney Tower was completely in 1981. It is 304 metres tall and weighs 2,239 tons. It cost $26 million to construct the entire building. Taking the lift, it takes 44 seconds to get 250 metres above sea level.
Of course, the incredible beauty of Sydney Harbour makes this a knock out view, it’s also so intriguing to view my home town from a different perspective and be a bird for a few hours looking down. It reminds me of that great scene in the movie: Dead Poet’s Society where Mr Keating gets the boys to stand on their desks to see that same old ordinary classroom with fresh eyes.
So, please come and let your eyes do the walking. Join me on a 360 Degree Photographic Tour of Sydney where I’ll share views from the tower with views from the ground and even a few intriguing facts about this incredible place.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge
Unfortunately, the view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, also known as “the Coathanger”, wasn’t great from the Sydney Tower Eye, being seriously over-cluttered by other buildings and poor urban planning.
