Nice experience, you can see 2 side of melbourne (harbour side n city side). This attraction easy to find, just ride free tram (no 35/70/city circle) from flinders street and stop at the end of the line. Walk 300 m, holaaa....you arrived there.

Although the sun wasn't out we had a great view from The Star and as it was quite we had a capsule to ourselves. The running commentary was very interesting and informative. Great value for the cost.

After many years of living in Melbourne, I was excited to see that the wheel started to operate in 2018. In my opinion, it is a small version of London Eye. However, It does not climb very high and the view is limited to 40...More

It moves very slowly, so if you're driving past, it will look like it's not moving at all.

Day 1 won't work as the market is only open until 2pm. I'd suggest doing one of your other activities like federation square in this time instead as it only takes a couple of hours to enjoy it and maybe visit the art gallery. On Day 3 you could do the market in the morning and then have a wander around the central city area taking in the lane ways, Chinatown, shopping etc. there are free walking tours you can join from some of the tourist centers which could be good. When you go to...More
