Enjoy spectacular panoramic views with a ride on the Melbourne Star. Before you board, explore the multimedia Tales of Melbourne display at the base of the wheel for a historical introduction. Then, climb aboard one of 21 comfortable, air-conditioned passenger pods that hold up to 20 passengers each. As you rise up nearly 400 feet (120 meters), learn interesting facts about Melbourne’s history and the sights below from a recorded narrator.
Throughout the 30-minute ride, spot Melbourne attractions like Etihad Stadium and Flemington Racecourse, plus natural landmarks like the Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Mount Macedon and the Dandenong Ranges.
A nighttime ride features a dazzling light show courtesy of the millions of LED bulbs that decorate the Ferris wheel. Brightly colored patterns radiate throughout the star and rim of the steel structure for a constantly changing digital display. To experience the Melbourne Star by day and night, upgrade to the encore package for a discounted return entrance within 30 days.
