A fabulous experience. The wheel was much huger than I expected. I always thought the wheel is stopped but I just realized that it moves all the time but with a such a slow pace that it appears to be still from distance. The whole journey took 30 min. The cabins were spacious.
The Melbourne Star is a great way to see the sights of Melbourne
Natasha Roman 1 year ago

The Melbourne Star is a great way to see the sights of Melbourne. We decided to go on a romantic date whichever was great cause you get your own personal cabin, during the day everything was super clear although I imagine going at night would be better.

The new lighting was supposed to be up on the day of our ride however not all lights were light up during our ride

The new lighting was supposed to be up on the day of our ride however not all lights were light up during our ride. Nonetheless, it's a great experience and the view of Melbourne is superb, everyone is enjoying! The ticketing is smooth and easy, thanks to Experience Oz!

Nice experience
Kannan Nagappan 2 years ago

Nice experience. Parking is expensive. Better to take trains inside the city. The wheel is similar to the Singapore Flyer but slightly smaller. Best to go after sunset to see the night lights. It was a 30 mins ride. Got a good price with Experience Oz. Thank you!

The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel was a wonderful experience. The wheel is huge and much bigger than we expected. The view was awesome letting you see the entire Melbourne. The wheel travelled at a slow pace. It took around 30 min. The cabins were spacious.

I loved how it dosent even feel like your moving it's just so smooth and delicate with the mechanics that are used very very good. Absouluty what a great way to finish my holiday experience in Melbourne.

The booking was seamless and the staff on arrival were friendly and very helpful
Laura Cairns 2 years ago

The booking was seamless and the staff on arrival were friendly and very helpful. The trip around is sure worth the wait and trip into Melbourne. I can't wait to see it during sunset. The staff are amazingly friendly and their assistance was more than helpful.

I went on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and it was excellent
Sharni Gazzard 2 years ago

I went on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and it was excellent. It was at a discount rate of $10 and for that price, I give it a 10/10. You experience astounding 360 views. At the non-discounted price, I'm not sure if I'd give it as high a rating. For $10, I would definitely go on it again. I think it is better than the Eureka Sky Deck.

I chose to try out the Melbourne Star at sunset and it was beautiful
Heather Graziano 2 years ago

I chose to try out the Melbourne Star at sunset and it was beautiful! It was light enough to get a great view over the city, and then seeing the colours of the setting sun from so high up was incredible. The staff were all helpful and friendly and they made sure there weren't too many people in each car. $10 was a fantastic deal too!
