School Holidays: Day 14 part 2!

Which way?
 Which way?..
 WOW! I wonder whats up there..
 Incredible..
  Look! There's Tiger Land!!
 The people look like ants..
 I can squish the cars with my little finger..
 Spectacular..
 Sensational..
 Look! a worm..
 Is that a boat?..
 I can see the mountains..
 Maybe the flash was not a great idea..
 I can see Flemington Racecourse!
 Zoooooooom..
 Where does the water finish and sky start?..
 Looking down to where we just were.. (zoomed in)

For those thinking of going and need per-swaying here are some facts and figures for you!!

  • Skydeck 88 is the highest public vantage point in the southern hemisphere.
  • Eureka is 984.3ft / 300 meters in height.
  • The top of the tower can flex up to 600mm in high winds.
  • Two 300,000 litre water tanks on levels 90 & 91 prevent any excess swaying.
  • The lifts travel at more than 9 metres per second making them the fastest in the southern hemisphere.
  • 3,680 stairs - 92 storeys - 52,000 square meter windows.
  • The glass on Eureka's top 10 levels is 24 carat gold plated.
