"Imagine your standing on a platform, 270 metres above sea level fully immersed in the stunning view of golden sands, lush tropical mountains and the Gold Coast's city scape at your feet" - so are the views from the Q1, the highest residential tower in the Gold Coast.

And you can have the experience of a lifetime when you take the SkyPoint Climb; Australia's highest external building walk. For those seeking a unique thrilling experience, this tower climb is a must-do. So what makes the Q1 unique? Well for starters, the spire on the top of the Q1 is one of the world's longest at 97.7 metres. The building itself is the 25th tallest building and is 322.5 metres high, and is taller than the Chrysler building in New York City.

For those who take the climb, everything is provided to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable experience. During the climb, you will be fitted with a special climbing suit into a full body harness, which will then be attached a purpose-built safety rail system. You will also be part of a climbing group, with an expert climb leader guiding you each step of the way. For the apprehensive, you can use the internal hand rail for your peace of mind during the climb, but for the more adventurous you can walk along the edge of the stairs, "experiencing the thrill of a 270-metre vertical drop".

Upon reaching the summit, you will be able to soak in the fresh air and 360 degree views of the city and the coast, and also have your complimentary photo taken. As for your 'supporters', they can view your entire climb from the security of the glass ceiling inside the SkyPoint Observation Deck. There are great deals currently on offer, and you can choose one of two climbs: the day climb or the twilight climb. Each climb is 90 minutes in duration, and upon completion, you will receive, among other items, a commemorative climber certificate and official SkyPoint merchandise. The "journey to the summit of the Q1, Gold Coast's most iconic residential tower" will be one to remember.

Please note that if you are taking children on the climb, those aged between 12 and 15 inclusive should be accompanied by an adult. All safety requirements and other key information is noted on the website. The Q1 SkyPoint Climb is an all-weather event, and is open 7 days a week, including Australia Day; so to make this day or any special day a terrific occasion, consider booking your SkyPoint Climb. And even if this climb isn't the thing for you, it is still a great gift idea you can give for someone special; so check out the website for more information.

So for an experience like no other; try the SkyPoint Climb for a great adventure "sure to make any birthday, anniversary or celebration simple unforgettable".
