It looks like a half eaten lolly pop, but it's a part of the Sydney skyline and the best place to go if you like to look at a city spread out below you. Lots of people still call it Centrepoint because it rises 305 metres out of Pitt Street's Centrepoint Mall, but in the 90's it got a refurb for the tourists and now has one of those 3D ride experiences as well as the observation deck at 250 metres up. Another 18 metres up there is an open air observation deck which you need to book a place on a tour to go out on. The tourists seem to like it – it could be because you can see it from all over town, but it's really only fun if you know the city well and can pick out your house and those of your friends – which you can easily if it's a clear day.

To go with the very 70's stylings of the tower there's a revolving restaurant where you can be served kangaroo and emu (the animals gracing Australia's coat of arms), which is typically touristy so don't ask me what it tastes like - it's not really a local specialty.
