  • It's worth the money and half an hour to get an overview of the city. It's gentle so kids or people prone to motion sickness can enjoy it. Two negatives. One, the commentary was out of step from what ...  more »
  • Magnificent view of Melbourne city. Stunning and beautiful. Must see attraction if visiting Melbourne  more »
  • Slow moving so not scary for little kids. Great for visitors from interstate or overseas, but I would recommend Eureka Tower as a first choice. I personally believe this should have been placed in a b...  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!
  • Gorgeous views on a 30 minute ride in a car viewing the city. Interesting facts about Melbourne are told for much of the journey from top to bottom and the seats are very comfortable, the cabins quite spacious. Enjoyed this experience and would certainly recommend.
  • Was actually more fun than I expected. Voice over tour guide had interesting facts to match the views. Wish you could see more of the south east of Melbourne though
  • Went on the Melbourne Wheels as there is a on-going Mother's Day promotion. If not it's too costly. I've enjoyed the 30 min ride.
  • 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.
