#UC Melbourne's Version of London Eye?

#1 Post by wayniac » Tue Feb 26, 2008 10:25 am

Hi Guys

Not too sure if this has been started, couldn't find it on forum. I went to Melbourne a few weeks ago and took some pics of the new ferris wheel Melbourne is building, it shits all over the one in Glenelg, by 10 times the size :-) (Only Kidding)

Removed (too Large)

These photos were taken at the waterfront area of docklands (the area with the marina and big screen tv's)

Thanks

That ferris wheel is part of the Waterfront City development occurring in the northern part of the Docklands area. It's a bit smaller than the London Eye though, reaching a height of about 120m, which is still one of the largest in the world. It is quite close to completition now, just a couple of more circumference segments and the wheel will be structurally complete.
