The Rialto Towers was once the tallest building in Melbourne and also one of the tallest towers in the southern hemisphere (that was before the construction of the Eureka Tower).
The beautiful building features two conjoined towers linked together. Visitors to Melbourne are encouraged to come here to witness the city’s vibrant skyline by dining at the Rialto restaurant built on the top of the observation desk.
Rialto Towers Bar & Restaurant Dining, Melbourne
Before the inauguration of the Eureka Building, the Rialto Towers was the tallest building in Melbourne. Those coming for the view can access the building from both Collins St and Flinders Lane. Once you enter the building, take the time to check out one of the high end restaurants located within.
The Rialto building was the first official skyscraper in Melbourne that offered an observation deck for the public. From 1994 to 2009, the tower was the only publicly accessible observation deck in Melbourne. From the 55th floor, visitors were able to enjoy an exquisite views of the city’s skyline from the deck, with the towers being serviced by express passenger lifts all throughout the day.
In 2009, the observation deck was closed for public use. However, you can still experience the amazing views by dining at the Vue De Monde restaurant or having a drink from the bar.
