Australia. Melbourne And Eureka Tower

Anich • 4 minutes read • October 22nd, 2016
In this review, I’m going to show you the glorious city of 

Melbourne,

from a height of 984 feet (300 meters).
Melbourne is the capital of the state of Victoria. This is the second largest city in Australia.
The population of Melbourne is slightly more than 4 million people (as of 2013). And yet it is the southernmost city, that houses the most millionaires, in the world.
I especially remembered

Eureka Tower

in Melbourne. I will show it in the pictures below. 
We spent more than two hours there.
 
Eureka Tower is the highest skyscraper in Melbourne, and concurrently it is one of the tallest buildings in the whole of Australia.
It is 984 feet (300 meters) tall.  There are 91 floors + 1 underground floor.
Eureca skydeck, a magnificent observation deck, is located on the 88th floor of the tower. There’s also a glass booth for an adrenaline buzz :)

Yarra River

.

11australia-melbourne-and-eureka-tower.jpgThis is the Arts Centre Melbourne.
At first, I thought it was a radio tower. 
12australia-melbourne-and-eureka-tower.jpgHere’s a view of the beach of Melbourne.
Please note that most of the high-rise buildings are concentrated in the city center.
13australia-melbourne-and-eureka-tower.jpgThis is the Flinders Street Railway station.

18australia-melbourne-and-eureka-tower.jpgAnd then we finally got to EDGE.
It was some kind of a cabin with a transparent floor. We left our things and all our equipment, wore black shoe covers, and went inside.
The cabin closed and exited the building by 9 feet (3 meters).
Later, to heighten the effect of this extreme attraction, there were flickers on the glass floor and walls.
At that moment I understood why, instead of tickets, all the visitors were given yellow bracelets "I survived the EDGE" as souvenirs.
