WATCH: This is what it’s like to do the SkyPoint Climb at night

By day the Gold Coast has one of the prettiest skylines in Australia, but it looks even more beautiful once all those bright, shimmering lights are switched on at night.

While adventure-seekers have been able to climb atop the Q1 building and admire the stunning GC view during the day, from this Friday, they’ll be able to see it sparkling in all it’s glory at night.

SkyPoint is launching Night Climbs just in time for the school holidays, with locals and tourists now able to ascend 270 metres above sea level to enjoy uninterrupted 360-degree views of our city in the open air.


I was lucky enough to be one of the first to test out the new experience, and boy, was it an incredible adrenaline rush!

I am not going to lie to you and say it was a piece of cake – I was shaking in boots the entire time and held onto the railings for dear life.

But it was seriously well worth it once I reached the summit, known as the eagle’s nest, and saw the breathtaking view.

If you want to know what it’s really like to climb to the top of Q1 in the dark, watch the video below:

SkyPoint’s Night Climbs will begin on 15 September and will be held every day during the Queensland school holidays, and every Friday and Saturday outside school holiday times. For more information and ticket prices, visit:
