Eureka celebrates its 8th birthday

14 Jun 2015

Eureka celebrates its 8th birthday Image

One of Melbourne’s most prominent structures celebrated a major milestone last month, as Eureka Tower marked its 8th birthday in Southbank.

As Melbourne’s tallest tower, Eureka has become a landmark feature in the city’s skyline and a major attraction in Southbank since it was officially opened on May 15 in 2007.

On that same date last month, residents, building workers and visitors gathered to celebrate the milestone at the building’s biggest attraction Eureka Skydeck 88 – the highest viewing platform in the southern hemisphere.

Having taken over four years to build and costing approximately $500 million to construct, the 92 storey, 297-meter high building is one of only 17 buildings in the world that sits more than 90 storeys above ground level.

Almost a decade on the building continues to thrive, as one of the Melbourne’s greatest attractions.

Eureka Skydeck will be continuing the celebrations this month, this time helping local kids to make the most out of the winter school holidays by celebrating the launch of the movie Minions, with Minion Mania.

From June 26 to July 12, the observation deck will turn into a minion-themed oasis offering a range of fun giveaways and activities.
