Charge your camera for panoramic photographs from SkyTower, the tallest structure in New Zealand. Auckland's eye-catching landmark, this 328 m (1,076 ft) observation and telecommunications tower rises over the city's business district and remains best known for its unique needle-like design. An elevator whisks you to the top in less than 40 seconds, leaving plenty of time for breathtaking views from one of the observation decks. For an extra kick of adrenaline, take a peek at the city below through the glass-floor panels. If you happen to be here at sunset, you can see the colors changing over the city and enjoy a cocktail at the tower's cafe/bar.

This is among the must visits one can do in New Zealand. The iconic sky tower is a great experience and it gives a 360 degrees view of the Auckland City, the financial hub of New Zealand. There is a nice cafe where you can even relax and have a nice time with good food and conversations. I would surely recommend a visit to this place! Cheers
So festive at Christmas time, security were present and active on site. Very clean environment, for CBD, it free flowing and clean. Really enjoy going to the Sky Tower. My kids loved it when they went up for free during the holidays and were able to do different activities. Free movies was also an added bonus where I was more than happy to pay for parking.
