Eureka Skydeck

Head up 88 stories to the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere!
It's pretty touristy but you really can't beat the view up there.
There are floor to ceiling windows around the whole floor so you can really see every bit of Melbourne. Dotted around the space they have fixed scopes you can look through to see key buildings and landmarks and of course there's a snack kiosk in case you get hungry.
The EDGE experience is also available, where you enter a glass box which is then moved out from the building (so you can look down below you through the glass) be aware that it does cost extra. Apparently a lot of people have been confused about that. It costs nearly as much as your ticket up and from what I hear it's not any better view, I think it's more for the thrill of looking down and seeing the ground 300 meters below you.
