Melbourne’s answer to the ‘London Eye’ was dismantled over a year ago due to heat stress from a very hot summer, for now it’s broken but eventually it will all be put back together again. It will be known as the ‘Southern Star Observation Wheel’.

    1. I have been on the Brisbane eye and it was fantastic, but I was wondering how well that area has been cleaned up after the floods. That man-made beach along the river there was the best day out.


  1. Follow up question, only because I find this fascinating; Is there a liability issue in regards to design and/or construction due to the short life span? I mean, who is responsible for this mess? I find this really interesting, probably because I have done the London Eye. I just can’t imagine something like that lasting for such a short time due to heat! How hot did it get, anyway?

    I heard about the petrol explosions in Melbourne today. My ears are now open for Melbourne news since I am starting to learn the town! Hopefully I will see film on Channel 7 news!
