Looking up at the Sky Tower

The Sky Tower is an observation and telecommunications tower in the centre of  Auckland. Since it’s completion in 1997 it has become an icon of Auckland’s  modern skyline. In addition to going up in the lift to the Skydeck at 220  metres, you can opt for the Skywalk or Skyjump. The Skywalk is a group activity  which involves walking around the edge of the tower. You can see someone leaning  over the edge if you look closely on the top right side (they are on a harness).  The Skyjump is a 192 metre guide-cable-controlled jump. This is what the two  wires coming down from the tower are for. In this photograph, they serve to draw  the eye up to the “Skywalker” at the top.
