Get great views over Melbourne as you soar nearly 400 feet (120 meters) into the sky on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel. From the peak of the giant Ferris wheel, you can get sweeping views of Mount Macedon, Dandenong Ranges, the Docklands, Melbourne city center and Port Phillip Bay.
Each of the 21 fully air-conditioned enclosed cabins comfortably holds up to 20 passengers. Listen to informative prerecorded commentary that provides a wealth of information on Melbourne’s history and culture as you gaze at the sights below.
At night, the Melbourne Star glows with LED lighting that is woven through the wheel’s steel structure, creating a spectacular light show with more than 15 million combinations of light displays.
Leave time before or after your ride to learn about the city from the interpretative multimedia display Tales of Melbourne in the boarding area.
Want more? Experience the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel in the day and at night when you upgrade to the Encore package, which gives you two entrances to the ride at a reduced cost. Your second booking must be taken within 30 days of the first flight.
