The Sky Tower is one of the tallest buildings on the southern hemisphere. It can be found in Auckland , the largest city of New Zealand . The Sky Tower is a 328 m high transmission and telecommunication tower, which was opened in August 1997. From the four observation platforms the visitors can see as far as 82 km. The entrance to the Sky Tower is located in the basement, where is a lift. The lower viewing platform offers a bar. The main viewing platform of the Sky Tower offers free audio guides in many languages and a live weather forecast. Above the main viewing platform is the Orbit Revolving Restaurant, which rotates on its axis. It takes approximately an hour for the restaurant to turn around. Another interesting attraction of the Sky Tower is the Sky Jump platform, from which you can jump off on 192 m long ropes. Even higher is the outdoor observation platform equipped with powerful telescopes. The highest view point of the Sky Tower and of New Zealand is the Skydeck, which offers a wonderful view through its unframed glazing. At the very top of the Sky Tower is 93 m high peak weighing 150 tons, which is the main broadcasting and telecommunication mast far and away. The Sky Tower has been built so that it can endure high winds up to 200 km per hour, and earthquakes up to 7 degrees on the Richter scale. The Sky Tower is a part of the Skycity, the largest casino in New Zealand , and it is the casino's most often visited attraction. Almost a million people visit Sky Tower annually. It is an outstanding dominant of the city, even at night when it is beautifully lit and especially at Christmas time when it shines in different colours.
