Melbourne Star Observation Wheel

Melbourne, Victoria

A wheel with 21 air-conditioned cabins located at the Melbourne Docklands giving 360 degree panorama of Melbourne for as far as 40 kilometres.

More than 150,000 people have enjoyed a ride on the Melbourne Star since it opened in late December last year (six months to June 2014). One ticket covers a single rotation of the Star, which is around 30 minutes' duration.
