After dinner, we went for a ride at Melbourne Star at Docklands. We didn’t expect the degustation dinner would stretch over two hours, so by the time it finished we really had to rush. We took the tram to Docklands and practically ran to the ticket booth. I was really worried that we would miss out the last flight departure of the night.
Melbourne Star is that giant 120 metres height observation wheel located in waterfront Docklands area of Melbourne. There are 21 spacious, fully enclosed and air-conditioned cabins all together with audio commentary along the whole 30 minutes ride. Each cabin capacity is 20 people and made of floor-to-ceiling glass that allows people to walk around and have 360-degree view of the city and surrounding.
Here are the shots we took during the 30 minutes ride – view was magnificent from up there. And we are truly happy that the weather had been nice, it hadn’t rained that whole day. Alas it would probably be quite frightening to be up there when it is pouring with strong wind. Also, we are lucky to have the whole cabin to ourselves, so that we won’t be bothering other people to take pictures 🙂
To summarize, it is definitely worth the efforts to come and have that night ride. However, I imagine day ride would be just as amazing, maybe we’ll do that next trip 🙂 The feeling of being kids again, so priceless!
