Melbourne Star Observation Wheel

Local nameMelbourne Star Observation Wheel
LocationMelbourne, Australia

The Melbourne Star is a giant Ferris wheel in the Waterfront City precinct in the Docklands area of Melbourne, the state capital of Victoria, Australia.

Described by its operators as "the Southern Hemisphere's only giant observation wheel", it is 120 m tall and has seven spokes, reflecting the seven-pointed star of the Australian flag.It opened two years behind schedule in December 2008, but closed 40 days later due to structural defects, and was subsequently dismantled for major repairs. The wheel itself was scrapped and replaced, but the original support structure and passenger cabins were retained. It was originally thought that reconstruction might be completed in late 2010, but repeated delays meant it did not reopen until 23 December 2013.
