General description

Sydney Tower Facts

* The golden turret has a capacity of 960 persons and contains two levels of restaurants, a coffee lounge, an Observation Deck, two telecommunication transmission levels and three plant levels.

* Three double deck lifts provide guests’ access to the Observation Deck.
* The 1504 fire-isolated sets of pressurised stairs, closely monitored by security, allow patrons direct access to street level, in case of an emergency.
* The 420 windows of the tower are cleaned by a semi – automatic window cleaning machine name ‘Charlie’. ‘Charlie’ recycles and filters 50 litres of water and takes two days to clean all the windows.
* A 162,000 litre water tank, the tower’s primary damping system also acts as a stabiliser for the tower.
* 56 cables stabilize the tower, and if the strands of these cables were laid end to end, they would reach from Sydney to Alice Springs or from Sydney to New Zealand.
* The spire located above the Tower is used for telecommunications and navigation purposes.
* Sydney Tower is the first to see the Sydney dawn, and the last to see its final dusk.
