Starring Melbourne Star Observation Wheel

Today some lucky City of Melbourne tourism volunteers and staff had the good fortune to take a “flight” on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, the third largest observation wheel in the world (the others being the London Eye and one in Singapore.

The wheel turned slowly giving ample time for photos and the staff had been careful to put only about 10-12 people standing in each cabin, meaning that we could all circulate and take shots from every direction: harbour, CBD, Flemington Racecourse. It gave a great overview of this developing part of Melbourne. The exhibition of Melbourne experiences on the way in and out plus the tastefully stocked gift shop all complemented the experience – well worth a visit with family, overseas guests or just to see it!
