Tourism Stage 1 students on a site visit to the Eureka Tower’s Skydeck

Today, our Tourism, Stage 1, students enjoyed a site visit to the Eureka Tower.  They attended a brief introductory slide show by Alex which covered many interesting facts.  Did you know it took 450 full time workers over 4 years to build this tower in 3 separate sections? Or that is has 2 of the fastest elevators in the Southern Hemisphere, taking a mere 38 seconds to level 88? Or that the gold covering some of the top floors is 24 ct?  Or that a penthouse on level 86 recently went up for sale for $18 million dollars?

Once on the Skydeck, the students enjoyed the amazing 360 degree views!

 

A great outing to gain some more product knowledge!
