  • Okay so I am not a tourist but felt the need to visit, the location is great for shopping and lunch but the views, speed of the wheel and the draining voice of the automatic tour guide over the speake...  more »
  • The best time to go is at dusk when the lights of Docklands has taken its effect. The views are good. My kids really loved the experience.  more »
  • This is a 40+ storey tall mobile viewing platform. It goes around a 1km an hour so really smooth, the views are amazing, you can get to the location by tram, bus or tour coach, or walk if you want to....  more »

  • Supposedly, the Melbourne Star is to be considered a major Melbourne attraction. We took an 11 year old student that our family is hosting from China to this 'major attraction' and on arrival, the staff informed us that it had closed at 6:00pm, though it was still operating while we were in line. The closing time advertised on this google account is 7pm. We were extremely disappointed to say the least. In fact, disgusted would be more appropriate. We arrived approximately between 6:15pm and 6:30pm, hoping to have shown our guest a beautiful night time view of the flickering lights close by and further beyond, but the only lights we saw were beaming, up above us, pointlessly, from the overrated white elephant, known as the Melbourne Star. You might as well turn the lights off if it is not in use. No wonder Harbour Town is a laughable Ghost Town. By the way, you should get your act together and update the wrong and misleading operating times you advertise on google; it will save many the trouble you caused for us and others. We were not the only people turned away; there were several Japanese tourists behind us in the line, before a closing announcement was made. Will definitely NOT be back. Shame on you. P.s. Have been on the white elephant before, on 3 separate occasions to entertain tourists - must say it is way overpriced, just as the fake photos are a rip off - stop justifying the price of a ride on a merry-go-round by naming it a so called 'flight.' It's not a flight. If value for money is a priority, I strongly recommend you "sail" the Eureka Tower.
  • Dead. There was a lot of dead space is the narrative that could've gone into more history of city. they also could clean windows more frequently to enable better camera shots. last is they made me leave my camera bag with lens inside at ticket counter´╝îso i was more concerned with my bag then actually enjoying view.
  • Try to get a voucher online, otherwise it's quite expensive. Helpful, friendly staff. A great experience! We loved our flight and I hope to go again soon. The view of Melbourne is amazing and the cabins are clean, comfortable and modern. They take your photo, which is a good idea, but they're too expensive. If they were $5 or $10, they'd sell so many more, even if we only got online photos.
  • It was a great way to look at Melbourne! It had some one on a speaker that could tell you lots of facts and that made it interesting. As you enter it looks scary, but they have it go at a nice slow pace!
  • Went to Artvo and took a tonne of 3D photos, with amazing paintings, had some yummy lunch and then played 18 holes of glow in the dark mini golf. My wife, 2 children (10 years old and 4 years old) and myself, all had a fun filled, great experience and will definitely be back. I also found the car parking fees at Harbour Town Car Parking, to be very reasonable (up to six hours car parking was only $10).

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
