Melbourne Star Observation Wheel has reopened. Check out the website for operating days, times and to pre-book your tickets.

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.

With its stunning nightly light shows and striking scale, the Melbourne Star is a glittering jewel in the sky above Melbourne’s Docklands. The unique “Star within a Star” design represents the seven-pointed Federation Star of the Australian flag which is transformed at night by a kaleidoscope of colours in a spectacular LED display with over 16 million different combinations.

Melbourne Star is the perfect starting or finishing point for any day out in this great city.

The team look forward to welcoming you – come fly with them.
