Melbourne Takes High Tea to a New Level
Melbourne is taking the ritual of high tea in the most literal sense! You can now indulge in an afternoon tea session in the sky with Melbourne Star Observation Wheel’s one-of-a-kind Star Experience packages.
Guests will be able to dine in a private cabin on the only giant observation wheel in the Southern Hemisphere, complete with a selection of gourmet food and beverage menu, delivered and served by Melbourne’s leading caterer Peter Rowland Catering.
Enjoy home-made scones, delicate finger sandwiches, petite chocolate éclairs and other scrumptious pastries in one of Melbourne Star’s air-conditioned glass cabins while enjoying unobstructed 360-degrees views of the city’s CBD, Port Phillip Bay, Mount Macedon and the Dandenong Ranges.
Besides high tea, the Star Experience packages offer an extensive menu – from the Sky’s the Limit (assorted sashimi and sushi, and a prawn, oyster and cured salmon seafood box), Star 360 (blini with smoked salmon, wild mushroom and white truffle frittata), to Melbourne by Dark (cheese selection), and much more, there’s something for every occasion. All packages include a choice of Victorian wines.
Premium cocktail packages for a minimum of 10 guests are also offered, with a full beverage trolley and an option for hot canapés.
Each Star Experience Packages starts with a set price for two people. For example, the High Tea page is $709 for two people in an exclusive cabin at a confirmed departure time. However, it is only $40 per extra person, up to a maximum of 14 people. That means a group of 14 could enjoy high tea while riding the Melbourne Star for only $85 per person.
The Melbourne Star has attracted more than 140,000 visitors since opening on December 23, 2013. For more information on Star Experience Package, contact +61 3 8688 9688. You can also visit www.visitmelbourne.com.
