The Melbourne Star is the Southern Hemisphere's only observation wheel, offering a sky-high experience like no other. Standing at a staggering 120 metres tall, this is Melbourne like you’ve never seen it before. Soak in the views on your Melbourne Star flight or take a “Welcome to Melbourne” Sparkling Flight to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or beer while on board. Open daily, it's a spectacular way to get your bearings, with uninterrupted 360 degree views of the unique attractions and the Bay before you. From famous landmarks, glittering skyscrapers, your unique vantage point will treat you to sights as far as the Dandenong and Macedon Ranges and across Port Phillip.
Booking online is cheaper and can be done minutes before going there. The experience is awesome and lasts for around 30 minutes. If 4+ people then will be put on your own cabin, if lesser might end up sharing cabin especially when crowded. There is helpful voice assisting you through out, helping you identify landmarks and their history.
