Melbourne Star, our version of the London Eye, has ceased operations. It just didn’t get the people to travel on it.
Seriously, I don’t know what they expected. It was put at the wrong end of town, in the Docklands, and out the back. The views were of the docklands, literally, little bit of the river and the city in the distance with the railway yard between.
I know they put it where they did hoping that it would draw people to that area, but the views were not worth the money they were charging. They should have put it on the river near Federation Square where you would be able to see the city, the river, MCG and the botanical gardens. It would have been worth cost then.
I did take photos of it on a few occassions, but I thought for Monochrome Madness I would show you one of my favourites. I hope you like it too.
