The Sydney Tower also known as Centrepoint Tower has three main attractions within it, the Observation Deck, Oz Trek and Sky Walk. The tower has been built in such a way that despite its height the building can withstand extreme conditions such as earthquakes and gale force winds.

Each year there is the Tour Run Up in which competitors have to run up the 1,504 steps to get to the top as quickly as possible. The race starts at Pitt St Mall and finishes at the Observation level, the current record is held at just under 7 minutes.
