It might seem a little touristy, but the Rialto Observation Deck is the quickest way to see all of Melbourne. Literally.

Standing 823 feet tall, the Rialto Tower Observation Deck is the fastest (the lightning elevators take 40 seconds to reach the top floor) way to get your bearings in Melbourne. With 360-degree view, the Observation Deck offers a breathtaking experience both day and night.
Towering over Melbourne's CBD, it's a great place to take a break from sight-seeing (at ground level at least) and rest your tired feet. Enjoy lunch or dinner at the fully licensed Café 360, but sunset is the ideal time to indulge in a nice wine as you watch the day slip away over the city.
