Conquer the heights and enjoy the best view of Melbourne from the top of the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel.
Conquer the heights and enjoy the best view of Melbourne from the top of the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel. The Melbourne Star is an absolute must-see. The observation wheel is 120 metres high, which is equivalent to a 40-storey building, giving you unbeatable panoramic views over the Melbourne CBD and beyond for your 30-minute ride.
First things first, check in (with your Adrenaline booking information) and make your way through the ‘Tales of Melbourne’. This is a range of interpretative story panels that show some of the highlights of Melbourne’s history and culture, from sporting achievements, to local inventors, and the city’s rich cultural diversity.
Then it’s time to board your cabin - a fully enclosed and air-conditioned glass cabin that accommodates up to 20 guests at a time and gives you an unobstructed 360 degree view of Melbourne. On a clear day you can even see all the way to Mount Martha and the Mornington Peninsula, Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley. While the Star takes you soaring over the city you’ll have an entertaining and specially-researched audio commentary that will guide you through the views from the cabin.
Once your 30 minute flight comes to an end, you are conveniently located right near plenty of restaurants, bars and public transport. There’s even the Olympic skating rink across the road. So you can enjoy the best attraction in Melbourne and keep the fun going.
