  • My first time on this but my second visit to Melbourne. Loved it. You can see for miles at every angle. It very slowly goes up and round so no need to be frightened at all. It only does the one circle...  more »
  • Watch the star Ferris wheel set up in the Docklands, near parking convenient, ticket sales have matinee and night, if you want to both see a discount. The space of the Ferris wheel is very big, the child can run on the above freely, very stable, see the beautiful city scenery, can find the corresponding building against the map. After eight years of leaving, it feels like Melbourne has changed a lot.

  • We went on a Thursday afternoon, it was very quiet. The 6yo enjoyed it a lot but the 3yo was very bored. The wheel itself is a remarkable piece even though it looked a bit old and tired... However I c...  more »

  • Great 100 million dollar views from this, the Southern Hemisphere's only Giant (120 m) Observation Wheel. In fact, it cost $100m to build and as as you can see from my photos here, the views from the floor-to-ceiling glazed wall passenger cabins are nothing short of spectacular. It's a comfortable ride in the air conditioned passenger cabins. All up, well it's well worth it. You'll get breathtaking views of Melbourne. If it's on offer, then you might also consider taking the go around again for an extra couple of dollars per person. We did!
  • Went there when it was very quiet and hardly a person around. After selling me a ticket I was turned away because I had a motorbike helmet with me. I can understand in peak period however there was hardly a person in site. There where some girls with handbags and they where aloud on yet someone carrying a helmet which was same size as bah was not aloud on. I left with a refund which may not worry them however word of mouth will. If I could give no stars I would as 1 star is too much.
  • A Melbourne icon and a fantastic place to see thhis beautiful city from a new perspective. The pods are climate controlled and the wheel turns so slowly that you barely feel it moving. Views are just phenomenal. Plenty of close parking and restaurants nearby for a fun day or night out.
  • Was a great day we had staff that were amazing we went on it twice in 1 day. At sunset and during the night so we could see melbourne with all the lights on . The $2 upgrade for a second ride was great value . My girlfriend loved it even though she is scared of heights. Again staff where amazing right from buying the tickets untill boarding the carriage and even when getting off the carriage at the end. So thank you to all staff working you did an amazing job will come back again for sure .
  • Picked an awesome warm clear evening to visit..loved the views and city lights.. the slow relaxed pace of the ride. and excellent colorful lighting on the wheel itself. cool lego model at the gift shop too! Super friendly staff.
