Also the Restaurant offically opens tonight. Bella from "My Restaurant Rules" or Manly's short lived Pink Salt will be the Matron aire (whatever they call it )

As for the skywalk itself - the press like it. In the SMH they even said that Bridgeclimb is in direct competition with Bridgeclimb (which I agree with without a doubt).

I would go there for the view, so waiting for the food won't matter much to me. (longer the better?)

How about the price?

I had a go at skywalk. Pretty damn good, very touristy though, not enough time for my liking.



I'm the one without the blank. They should give you a special disposable camera to use, they only take photos in one direction.

Thats a great shot Lennyr. The views are a ripper. Worth the money.

There has been alot of promotion over the past few weeks especially on TV. The ads are good, and show how the deck moves up and then out and it's been given alot of airtime as well.

Wah! Australia Square and Grosvenor. Still two of the smartest buildings in the city after 37 and 17 years respectively. Aurora and MLC not looking too bad either.

Great shot. WHo were you with? Why are they blocked out? Too ugly for our eyes?

The skywalk looks great! Months ago I was scared that it was going to deface the entire structure of Centrepoint Tower, but I've been proven wrong (fortunately), and it looks really good now! I'd be willing to try it one day if the opportunity arose.

Oi!! Theres some very close friends thank you very much. Don't think they would like me posting pics of them all over the net.

All you have to do is block your ears from all the touristy stuff and the walk is great. Stay at the back of the line. And sneak a camera up there with, has to be all plastic
