The Observation Deck Is Now Closed
The Observation Deck,
was way up on the 55th Floor of the Rialto Towers, one of Melbourne's
Tallest Skyscrapers, you could see 360 degree views of Melbourne and
From there you were able to take in the amazing sights that the city of Melbourne in Australia had to offer.
Suitable for an excellent family outing we will sadly miss the experience. The city is forever chaging and this is just one of many things to do in Melbourne that are changing.
I love this city and take pride in how it is growing. If you have had the opportunity in the past of experiencing the Rialto Oservation deck I am sure that you enjoyed your time up there.
Melbourne still has the Rialto Towers, two beautiful skyscrapers, however the general public can no longer enjoy the 360 degree views that were once so breath taking and an experience that was so memorable.
The Melbourne Observation Deck opened to the public on 19 July 1994 and was on the 55th floor of the South Tower, at 234 m.
Views of up to 60 km could be had on a clear day. However, on 31 December 2009, the observation deck closed to become a restaurant.
This is an excellent article showing some great views that were once experienced on the Observation deck ... Observation Deck Countdown
Nowadays the twin towers are used for the best modern and up to date office spaces. There is also an excellent restaurant, Vue de monde on the 55th floor offering superb, top class dining with a magnificent view.
I am sure that there have been thousands of tourists and locals who have journeyed up to the top of this great city to take in the fantastic views, I know I did and I am so sorry to have to say that we can no longer do so.
You can journey to the top of the Eureka Tower to look out over this great city however I do have to say of the two views we will sadly miss this one.
If you have a Rialto Melbourne experience we would love to hear about it, maybe some great photos as well. Just fill in the details below.
