Okay – well that has the when, where and what covered right? So now you’re wondering “How much is this going to cost for a family or four/five/six etc.” Well believe it not, the event is FREE! Yippee! Who knows, Mum and Dad may even get to enjoy a hot coffee and a chat together whilst the kids play to their hearts content.
It is likely that you will encounter a representative from Disney’s charity partner Big Brother Big Sister encouraging people to make a gold coin donation to go towards helping young Australians who face serious adversity by developing positive an supportive relationships with adults.
Melbourne Star Observation Wheel
The Melbourne Star is open daily from 10am – 10pm and is the only observation wheel in the Southern Hemisphere.
Will I be taking my kids on it? Damn right I will! You have no idea how many times my kids have pointed that thing out and nagged to go there when we have been on our way to the airport or some other destination near to the city. After going on the London Eye with Hubby way back in 2000 (eeek!) I will relish the opportunity to look over our home city of Melbourne with my little people!
Melbourne Star offers family packages that start from $56.
