Observation Deck

SkyPoint, formerly known as QDeck, is an observation deck at levels 77 and 78. It is Australia's only beachside observation deck and has room enough for 400 people. It towers 230 metres above the Surfers Paradise beach, giving viewers a 360 degree view of Brisbane to the north, the Gold Coast Hinterland to the west, Byron Bay to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the east. The express elevator to the observation deck travels the 77 floors in 43 seconds.

Famous quotes containing the words deck and/or observation:

    The almost universal bareness and smoothness of the landscape were as agreeable as novel, making it so much more like the deck of a vessel.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    It is a great pity—but ‘tis certain from every day’s observation of man, that he may be set on fire like a candle, at either end—provided there is a sufficient wick standing out.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
