Auckland’s 2nd gift to the world: Sky Tower

Auckland’s second gift to the world is the 328 metre Sky Tower, the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere. From the top on a clear day, visitors can see more than 80 kilometres in every direction.

However, if they don’t like it, they can literally take a running jump. If adventure is your thing, then the Sky Jump is for you. Attached to a harness and cable, you fall towards the street at 80kph for around 15 seconds and 192m before slowing up just before touching down on the pavement – like a more controlled, less bouncy bungee jump. When that’s all over, there are casinos, restaurants, bars and hotels to enjoy in the same complex.
