You do a cable jump from the nearly 300-foot tower, but it is pretty costly and, quite frankly, it is not worth the expense. This is not a bunjee jump. You are harnessed between two cables running the height of the tower, so no possibility of swinging (and smacking into the tower). If you consider the fall lasts only about 15 seconds and you pay $200, you are spending over 13 cents a second. You are better off doing a tandem parachute jump from 12,000 feet for about the same price in the US. That jump lasts about 5 minutes and is a spine-tingling, face-furrowing (in the free-falll part) thrill. You can take the elevator to the observation deck and watch the jumpers zip down. A monitor tells you when the next jumper will be coming, so you can get your camera ready. Set your shutter to multiple shots to get one good one.

it is an amazing view of the city and Auckland bay area, but it is simply an elevator ride (much like riding up the empire state building). so if that is your thing ... ride away!

Unless you go up the tower, there isn't much to see here other than a resort hotel.

Great observation tower that lets you look all around Auckland. 328 meters high, it also has some clear flooring so you can see straight down.

More adventurous types can try out a Sky Jump or a Sky Walk. Didn't get a chance to try that myself.

This telecommunications and broadcasting tower is an iconic building in Auckland and arguably the tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere! The observation deck offers great city views from its scary glass flooring. If you want to fly high, the venue offers 192 meters high 'SkyJump' from its observation deck, or you can also admire jumpers on their way down from the tower’s revolving restaurant below.

With restaurants, a bar and a viewing deck - as well as an opportunity to walk around the outside of and bungy jumping off the Skytower - it is for anyone! Whether you want thrills or just a nice wine, the Skytower has it!
