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!
