At Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, we have always placed an emphasis on the safety of our team members and guests. We always follow rigorous procedures to ensure we operate safely and within all government regulations.
The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to review and introduce a range of new health and safety measures that are in line with the government advice and health requirements.
To make sure when we do welcome you back, we do so in the safest way possible. Some of the measures will be clearly visible to you on arrival but, others require consideration from you as our guests.
Before you arrive:
We would appreciate if you pre-book your tickets online at melbournestar.com (where possible).
This helps reduce personal contact with our Guest Relations team.
To help you keep updated we recommend you check out our website for operating days, times and all updates.
We politely request if you have any symptoms associated with COVID-19 you reschedule your visit. Please note all tickets purchased prior to 1 June 2020 have been extended thru to 24 December 2020.

Our Guest Relations team members are located in a fully enclosed ticketing cabin.
Our ticketing team would prefer cashless payments. We accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express and Alipay at no additional cost.
