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.

Best view of the coast

A trip up to the SkyPoint Observation Deck is worth the entry fee for the best view of the Gold Coast! We relax and enjoy brunch or afternoon tea here often.

Family and i visited at midday, great views to be seen although it would be nice if the windows were clean! Staff need to pay attention to the inside of the windows, need to be wiped often. People's/kids dirty hands all over them doesn't allow for the best viewing or photos. Disappointing how dirty the windows were and the glass... More

We had the 7 day entry pass with our Dreamworld pass so visited in the daytime (morning) and again at night. Incredible 360 degree views, make sure you choose a clear day to visit and you can see for miles! Not sure we would have paid the full price to visit twice (or even once) but with the pass it...

Wanted to go up there 2 adults and a 4 1/2 old. 68$ they wanted. What else to say?!???!???? They apologized and said that there is a breakfast deal that can be pre booked and then the lift to go up to the deck only works to be 10 $ per person.....

A bonus buying a season pass to Dreamworld is you are able to head up to the Skypoint Observation Deck. We decided to check out the views during the day and the night. The children thought the elevator up to the deck was and experience in it self! Well worth checking out as the views are amazing.

A good spot for tourists to have a view of Surfers and surrounds. Being a local we take our friends there, but the hefty price of ticket doesn't attract me a lot. Just a standard thing to do for newbies in town.

Took the relatives up (my first time too!) and was pleasantly surprised. The views are amazing - added bonus that there is a restaurant/bar that you can purchase a meal/drink/cocktail and even HIGH TEA and admire the skyline!

Wow! Views from the observation deck are stunning, staff are pleasant and the lift to the 77th floor is cool. That's about where the positives stop. I have never seen such a poorly cleaned restaurant - no customers and yet tables had mugs and plates all over them? Floors near the observation windows are always dirty however staff do vacuum...
