Skyline Tour Health and Safety

The Skyline Tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours. This includes a health and safety demonstration and journey to the Skyline walkway. Visitors must climb up 100 steps before the tour and climb down 100 steps following the tour.

To take a Skyline Tour, you must:

  • Have a reasonable fitness level

  • Are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Are under 1.2 metres in height
  • Have undergone surgery in the past 6 months
  • Have any broken bones or are on crutches
