Accessibility for guests with specific needs

Melbourne Star Observation Wheel welcomes guests with mobility restrictions and specific needs.

Lift access is provided to the boarding deck and ramps are available to assist with ease of movement into and out of the cabins for guests who require additional assistance. Melbourne Star pauses temporarily when boarding guests in wheelchairs and to assist those who require additional time.

To ensure safety wheelchairs users must be accompanied and assisted by a capable carer or companion. Guests in wheelchairs must carefully follow the instructions provided by Management prior to boarding.

Due to safety requirements, restrictions on motorised and non-motorised wheelchairs apply. Wheelchairs are to be locked into position in the allocated location within the cabin.  A maximum of two (2) wheelchairs are permitted within a cabin, and a maximum of six (6) wheelchairs are permitted on Melbourne Star at any one time.

Mobile scooters are not permitted inside the cabins. Melbourne Star has a limited number of non-motorised wheelchairs for an individual’s use if required. Notifying us in advance to ensure availability of these is strongly advised.

Guests who are Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing travelling on their own will be provided with a mobile phone to use on their flight. This phone is designed to communicate announcements and safety instructions to guest as well as guest to communicate with Melbourne Star Staff in unlikely event the guest should need to.

Companion Cards

Tickets for Companion Card holders must be obtained in person at Melbourne Star’s Ticket Office. It is a requirement for our Guest Relations staff to sight a copy of the Companion Card prior to issuing a ticket.

Guide Dogs

Melbourne Star welcomes guests and their guide, hearing or assistance dogs.


Melbourne Star’s cabins are designed to allow guests to easily move around the cabin during their experience. Each cabin provides a central bench seat for the comfort of our guests.


There are car drop-off points along Pearl River Road for individuals with mobility restrictions and parking within the car parks located on Pearl River Road and Waterfront Way for those with disabled car permits.
