Look around and drink it all in; from here at the top of the SkyPoint climb on the shores of Surfers Paradise, visitors find themselves standing at the top of Australia’s highest building climb—nearly 900 feet about the surf and sandy shores below. Located atop the Q1 building, the SkyPoint climb begins up on the 77th story, where the SkyPoint Observation Deck provides epic views of the Queensland coast along with dining and drinks. When suiting up for the outdoor climb, guests will don a helmet, harness, and receive a safety briefing, before clipping in to the building’s cables and starting the journey up top. Though the climb begins at just over 750 feet, it’s nearly another 150 feet to reach the top of the SkyPoint, where the views stretch out in every direction from the Queensland hinterland off in the west to the Brisbane skyline to the north. For a spectacular way to end the day, experience sunset from 90 stories above the Queensland coast, on a twilight climb that offers a view unlike anywhere else in Australia. Combine the climb with dinner and drinks once back on the observation deck, and toast to the thrilling experience of placing the city beneath your feet.
The entire SkyPoint climbing experience takes approximately 90 minutes. Since the climb involves nearly 300 stairs, all participants should be in fairly good health and not have a fear of heights. All participants must be at least 12 years old, 4’3” tall, and not weigh more than 300 lbs. Comfortable, closed toed shoes are required, and all loose items must be removed before beginning the climb.
