Australia's Highest Apartment - Penthouse at Eureka Tower

Date of Record: 2006

On the 84th floor of Melbourne's tallest residential building, the Eureka Tower, a penthouse apartment is Australia's 'highest' apartment.

The plush suite is one of the city's most expensive apartments and comes with multimillion-dollar views to match. Occupying the entire floor it has a 360-degree vista across Melbourne, the mountains and Port Phillip Bay.

It is 660 square metres, which is more than double the size of the average Australian house.

The Eureka penthouse sits almost 280 metres above Southbank. Its closest rival, the level 74 penthouse of the southern hemisphere's tallest skyscraper Q1, on the Gold Coast, is at roughly 217 metres.
