Treat Mum to a must-do flight on Melbourne Star Observation Wheel with all mothers flying half price across the Mother's Day weekend - Saturday May 13 and Sunday May 14, 2017.
And in an extra special Mother's Day treat, mums flying between 7pm and 9pm on Sunday May 14 receive a box of Pure Indulgence pralines for the family and an everlasting rose for themselves.
'A flight on the Melbourne Star provides a wonderful chance for families to get together for a truly magical experience this Mother's Day weekend," Managing Director, Toshiya Kawasaki, said.
'Give Mum a view of the city like never before in the warmth and comfort of a cabin on the only giant observation wheel in the Southern Hemisphere."
One of Victoria's highest profile attractions, the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel offers a 30-minute journey in the climate-controlled panoramic cabins, which give passengers stunning 360-degree views of Melbourne and beyond, while audio commentary reveals hidden stories of the world below.
Melbourne Star Observation Wheel has grown in popularity in the past few years and is fast becoming one of Victoria's top tourist attractions. It recently was recognised with a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence and Viator's 2016 Top Rated Award.
Whether you fly in daylight – admiring the ever-changing port, fast-flowing freeways or million-dollar yachts berthing in the harbour – or after dark to enjoy the dazzling multi-coloured LED light display, there is always something interesting to see.
Families can add to their special experience by taking Mum for a meal or exploring the 110 specialty shops at Harbour Town, nearby. Shop till you drop at two major retail centres and indulge at the many eateries and bars. Explore more than 45 art installations, roar with the crowds at Etihad Stadium or get your skates on and hit the ice at Australia's premiere ice-skating destination, the O'Brien Group Arena.
All mums flying between 11am and 7pm on Saturday May 13 and 11am and 9pm on Sunday May 14 fly for half price ($18). Please note Mum's discounted tickets are only available for purchase onsite.
