Reach for the sky with a ride on Melbourne's newest star attraction, Melbourne Star Observation Wheel.

The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, located in Melbourne's waterfront precinct of Docklands, takes visitors on a 30-minute ride in fully enclosed glass cabins and offers extraordinary bird's-eye views of the city and surrounds, including Port Phillip Bay and as far away as Mount Macedon and the Dandenong Ranges.
Set your camera to landscape and take in views of up to 40 kilometres away during the day, or slow down the shutter speed in the evening to snap the city's night lights and see the observation wheel lighting up Melbourne's skyline.
Learn about Melbourne's history, culture and eccentricities from the Tales of Melbourne information panels before you board and reach expert level with the audio commentary in the observation cabins.
Cabins accommodate up to 20 people at a time, so grab some friends and take a flight of fancy for a new perspective of the city.

Every visit to Melbourne should start at the Star. For more information on Melbourne Star please view their website.
