SkyPoint Observation Deck is located on Levels 77 and 78 of the Q1 Building in Surfers Paradise and is Australia's only beach side observation deck. Rising a sheer 230 meters into the sky, SkyPoint is one of the Gold Coast's most popular attractions and has become a must see destination for locals and visitors alike. It provides stunning 360 degree panoramic views that stretch from the surf to the hinterland and beyond and provides the perfect location for visitors to experience the shimmering Gold Coast skyline at night or take in views from Brisbane to Byron Bay during the day. Enjoy a freshly prepared meal from Seventy7 Cafe and Bar as you spot whales migrating along the eastern coast or as a new storm rolls in. SkyPoint Observation Deck is a must-see for all Gold Coast visitors. With unrivalled 360 degree views from the coast to the hinterland, mini-theatrette and informative feature zones and displays that provide all the information you need to plan your holiday hit list. By night, SkyPoint Observation Deck transforms into a chic, high altitude lounge bar with music every Friday and Saturday night and Sunset Sounds on Sunday afternoon. Enjoy drinks and delicious platters with friends and take in the glittering skyline. SkyPoint Observation Deck is an 18+ venue on Friday and Saturday night from 8pm.

We visiting the Observation Deck during late morning. The views were beautiful - perhaps the best in the area. You can indeed walk around the deck and get a 360 degrees view. The lift is cool as it has a camera that shows you the shaft as you go up and down. The staff at the deck's bar are very... More

The café menu at this time of day was quite limited, however we enjoyed a tasty platter and a bottle of wine whilst taking in the amazing scenery. Next... More

The views of the ocean, the hinterland mountains, north and south seeing the high rise buildings, wonderful beaches and hundreds of kilometers of canals with luxury homes where the over 500,000 locals live. Wonderful way to see the extent of the Gold Coast

Well worth the trip to enjoy the views of the beautiful city and ocean. The elevator trip up to the 77th floor is fun and we had a great time looking around. We returned back also at night to see the amazing views with the lights of the city lit up.

We visited the SkyPoint Observation Deck on a clear sunny day and the views were amazing. 360 degree views of Surfers and the surrounding suburbs, beaches and landmarks made for an Awesome sight. SkyPoint is well worth a visit and there are plenty of food and beverage options once you get to the top to soak in all the views,... More
