  • Melbourne Star is something you should experience at least once. It gives you a fairly good perspective of the city in a relaxing atmosphere. The area where it's located is ever growing and changing. ...  more »

  • I am a person who is very scared of heights and I thought that I wouldn’t be able to go on the Star. Because it moves slowly it allows you to adjust and somehow not be scared of the heights as much as...  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!
  • This place and ride was amazing. If someone visiting Melbourne for the first time i strongly recommend them to get on the wheel to have a 360 deg breathtaking view. Staff was very friendly and service was great. Thumbs up for the experience.
  • It's an okay experience. I mean if your staying in the city for a short while and never coming back, just do it. Got the lights and sights tickets so we went there twice. The First time at night, the second just before sunset. It was nice, but not the sunset view I would have wanted. It's clearly stated that you can't take backpacks or cameras or any other shopping bag etc.. on the wheel. So be prepared. Take the essentials only; otherwise you would have to leave them at the entrance. We were with another couple in the cabin, both times, so we could move freely.The photos are not obligatory.
  • Great all round trip. Departure and arival was pleasant prompt and safe. Lots of helpful instructions. And information. Great 30 minutes. Has a special go around again (on the same day ) for extra $2 per person. If we had time would have been good.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Staff were all fantastic, best customer service i have ever encounted. My grandson Tom was overawed by the whole experience. Would highly recommend the Star to everyone. Thanks to all the fantastic staff for making it a truly unique day.

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.
