Melbourne Star Observation Wheel

To celebrate the launch of the Big Games Adventure we were treated to a ride on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel.  Overlooking Harbour Town Melbourne, the Melbourne Star is one of only four Giant Observation Wheels in the world, and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.  The 30 minute ride was an experience like no other and with perfect clear, blue skies we got to enjoy uninterrupted 360-degree panoramic views of Melbourne, Port Phillip Bay, right through to Mount Macedon and the Dandenong Ranges in the distance.


The in-cabin audio commentary gave us a brief introduction to the history and significance of the landmarks whilst the poppets absolutely loved providing their own commentary - excitedly yelling out what they could see in the busy port, scenic gardens, and bustling streets of the city below.  


A ride on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel is definitely something to add to your must-do list, so these school holidays we highly recommend taking advantage of their special offer - FREE flights for children when accompanied by a full paying adult.
