Breast cancer action month.



This photo was taken under the tower during the day.



From all angles of Auckland, The Sky Tower is visible. This is from the Auckland Domain during the day.

From Mt Albert Volcano, we get a good view of the city and the Sky Tower.

The Sky Tower in Auckland is our well loved icon. It stands up and can be seen from far away. It is 328 meters tall and is the tallest building in the whole of the southern hemisphere. Though tourists are told it is the Casino, it is Auckland's observation and telecommunications tower. You can do sky jump and walk round the observation tower.

Ka Pai aka good job to the SkyCity. At night the tower is illuminated in support of various causes.

This month for the last ten years, the tower has been lighted pink to support an issue that affects so many women. It is Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

SkyCity is hosting an event over three Monday nights when girls can pamper themselves with a girls' night out of Makeovers, Manicures, and Moet. A donation is given to the Breast Cancer Donation.
