The Melbourne Star is wonderfully designed and we enjoyed the cabin to ourselves. The only disappointment is it’s location. Melbourne is a beautiful city but where the wheel is located offers very underwhelming views. As a one off experience it’s great 👍More

If you haven’t been on any of the other observation wheels that the world has to offer, give this one a go. Having experienced others, this was not good. I don’t think that the Melbourne Docklands is the best location, there wasn’t really anything very...More

It moves very slowly, so if you're driving past, it will look like it's not moving at all.
