We had a very fun time exploring Melbourne from above. We saw landmarks that we had never seen before, and the buildings we had seen, the perspective was different and we enjoyed a breath-taking view.

We had a fun time watching the sun set from the Melbourne Star! Fun way to see the city and all of its glory. Comfortable car you ride in with plenty of room for walking around to see the entire city. We were there during the winter and ended up having a car to ourselves (6 total) and that was a treat. Had a glass of wine as we took the 30 min trip. A must do while in Melbourne!

This is a 30 minute rotation and if you are a tourist go during the week when the place is deserted. Hardly anyone on the wheel and the nearby restaurants are empty too!!

It costs $32 per adult and $28 for concessions on this giant observation wheel which is the largest in the southern hemisphere.

Each pod is air conditioned and you have a really good view of the capital Victoria.

At night, 3.5kms of sparkling lights decorate the wheel.

You can travel to the wheel by car, train or tram. The tram is free from the city centre circle line.

Have fun

This was a great Highlight of our Trip to Melbourne, Caught the Tram to Docklands, The Wheel is Huge! Senior Discount - Excellent. The Capsules are Big, plenty of room to walk around, only 4 people in ours, the wheel moves very slowly and you have plenty of time to take that snap that special picture.
