Melbourne received some news that unsettling news on Monday – the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel is set to permanently close. 

The large tourist attraction in Docklands is the latest victim of the pandemic after its parent company MB Star Properties Pty Ltd announced it will go into liquidation.

On Tuesday morning, Christian O’Connell paid tribute to the iconic ferris wheel which has been apart of the city’s skyline for more than 15 years.
