Ascend the Sky Tower in Auckland

This truly Astonishing Tower dominates the Auckland skyline. The view is something to behold and will have you awe-inspired and filled with invigoration for life. You will likely fall in love with the city of Auckland and New Zealand. You will climb 220 metres high up above street level (Level 60) in the very structurally sound building, thankfully there are 3 glass fronted lifts/elevators, and at the apex point, you get an entire 360˚ panoramic views up to 82 (51 miles) kilometres in every direction of the superb city of Auckland. Where you can spot key landmarks, volcanoes and other historical locations as far north as Leigh Peninsula, as far east as Great Barrier Island, as far west as the Waitakere Ranges, and as far south as the Bombay Hills. Simply splendid! It is also a hub for thrilling sky-high activities, special adrenaline-inducing events and top-class dining with breathtaking views. This unreal piece of architecture is just over 20 years old built in 1997, taking 2 years and 9 months to fully construct, at a cost of $85 million (NZ), with it now being the tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere!
