Charge your camera for panoramic photographs from SkyTower, the tallest structure in New Zealand. Auckland's eye-catching landmark, this 328 m (1,076 ft) observation and telecommunications tower rises over the city's business district and remains best known for its unique needle-like design. An elevator whisks you to the top in less than 40 seconds, leaving plenty of time for breathtaking views from one of the observation decks. For an extra kick of adrenaline, take a peek at the city below through the glass-floor panels. If you happen to be here at sunset, you can see the colors changing over the city and enjoy a cocktail at the tower's cafe/bar.

Sky Tower,Auckland was great. I'm not a height person at all so kept on the lower level though my husband went on the highest level. Apparently it was better in the sense of being closer to scenery and the decks went out further for better viewing. I,myself would imagine the top deck would be amazing for photographers.
Nice place to visit, have small meal/coffee. The sunset wasn't great but they cannot control the weather. The second level is nice, we didn't do the 360 exterior tour or the jump. Reasonably priced
