Welcome to today’s Middle Earth Monday and the iconic structure that is the Sky Tower, in Auckland (New Zealand’s largest city).
- Sky Tower is 328 metres / 1,076 ft tall, as measured from ground level to the top of the mast – its spectacular size makes it the tallest building in the southern hemisphere.
- The main observation deck, from here you can look out and see for over 82km / 51 miles.
- Sky Tower is fearsomely tall at 186 m / 610 ft high and has 38 mm / 1.5 in thick glass sections of flooring giving a view straight to the ground (eeek – it scared Mum to death!!)
For the really crazy folks you can do the ‘Sky Jump’ jumping off the outside, or you can climb down to the ground!
