Eureka Skydeck is certainly a must visit for anyone in Melbourne. The spectacular view from the highest building in Australia is worth every penny. Ideal time would be go an hour before sunset.
There was a dedicated lift to take us to the top floor and boy was it fast. It took less time to reach 88 floors than what our apartment lift takes to reach 10.
I could pretty much see every place I visited in the city from here. Federation Square, Southbank Footbridge, Royal Exhibition Building, Shrine of Remembrance and many more. There was also a post box placed near the cafe, which obviously was at the Highest altitude in Australia.
The Edge Experience
As what is known as the Edge Experience we could get into a glass box that would be pushed out of the building revealing the city below. This was rather overrated in my opinion. Mainly because of the reflection in the Glass that would make it seem much less scary, and also because of my skydiving experience.
The Windy Balcony
There was also a "balcony" where one can experience how windy it gets at the top. It was so windy that I was scared that my camera might fall off my hands. The wind was not constant and would come all of a sudden and can last for sometime.
The View at Night
The view at night was rather spectacular. However it was difficult to photograph again due to the reflections on the glass of the lighting inside.

Dockland Harbour is situated at the very end of the Tram 35 Route. It is however a place to visit and simply sit and enjoy the immense beauty of the ocean and the melbourne city.
There are some interesting art installations I encountered as i was walking in the precinct. Melbourne always seems to incorporate art pretty much everywhere.
Of course the Yachts and Boats were absolutely magnificent and reminded me of the Sophisticated Cat Meme.
The Precinct houses a large number of shops with pretty much everything for shopping. It was rather deserted when I went though.
The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel was not functional when I was there. It seems to have got a lot of flak from people.
