Melbourne Star to turn again this month

Melbourne Star Observation Wheel will reopen next week following the easing of restrictions in Victoria.

“We are so excited to be welcoming guests back to the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel after being temporarily grounded for 231 days this year,” said head of sales and marketing Nicole Hill.

“As an iconic landmark of the Melbourne city skyline, while we’ve closed, the Star has continued to light up every evening during the lockdown, illuminating the city as a reminder of the strength and vibrancy of Melbourne.”

The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel will reopen with new COVIDSafe measures including free upgrades to Private Cabins for all guests, with a maximum of six guests per cabin, entry and queue management, additional cleaning and hygiene practices at all high-frequency touchpoints including inside cabins and hand sanitiser stations. Patrons and staff will also be required to wear masks at all times.

“The wellbeing of our guests and employees will, of course be of the highest priority in reopening, with strict COVIDSafe hygiene and social distancing measures so our visitors can enjoy a safe and serene experience,” said Hill.
