Planning an overnight stay in Sydney?
For schools enjoying an overnight stay in Sydney we offer the option to visit us during the late afternoon, a beautiful time to visit and a great way to schedule in a Sydney Tower Eye visit around your other city activities. If you're visiting between mid-Autumn and early Spring this is a chance to watch the sunset from the tower. Be sure to check the sunset times that align with the month of your visit. To make this easier we have added these to our 2020 Education Calendar for Sydney Tower Eye.
