You’ve never seen Melbourne like this

Come fly on Melbourne Star, one of the largest giant observation wheels in the world, for a view like no other and an experience you’ll never forget.

Day or night, you’ll feel on top of the world as the Melbourne Star glides on its gentle arc through the sky. No spin is the same, as you watch the constantly changing drama of the busy port, scenic gardens, bustling streets and bright lights of the city below. Melbourne Star brings the whole of Melbourne together – the sophisticated, the grungy and the downright quirky – in spectacular views reaching up to 40km from Melbourne’s CBD and Port Phillip through to Mount Macedon and the Dandenong Ranges in the distance.

Our 21 spacious, temperature-controlled cabins give you an unparalleled, 360-degree view of the city. Walk around and take in the sights from all angles, while our audio commentary gives you a brief introduction to the history and significance of the landmarks below.

With its striking scale and innovative design, Melbourne Star is an iconic feature of Melbourne’s waterfront precinct, Docklands. A spectacular LED display transforms the wheel into a giant, glittering kaleidoscope of colour, with over five million different combinations which can be synchronised with music, giving you a complete sensory experience unlike any other.

Giant Observation Wheels

Melbourne Star is one of the largest giant observation wheels in the world.

Its design dramatically evolves the original 19th century ferris wheel with the application of significantly enhanced 21st century engineering and design advancements. Melbourne Star’s fully enclosed, temperature-controlled glass cabins provide unimpeded “floor-to-ceiling” views and are large enough to allow up to 20 guests to walk comfortably around without the feeling of cabin movement or vibration.
