The arrival of a giant Ferris Wheel at Bicentennial Park in Woody Point has put the residents of Moreton Bay in quite a spin.

The 35-metre wheel, installed by Skyline Attractions, offers locals and visitors an opportunity to take in panoramic views of Moreton Bay, Moreton Island, Brisbane and the wider region.

Jane Jones, Business Manager at Skyline Attractions, said they met with the council last year about bringing a wheel to the area.

“We have been working closely with the City of Moreton Bay council for several months on this project and now the time has come for everyone to enjoy it,” Jane said.

“We had put forward many different suitable locations and between us and Council we settled on this one at Woody Point.

“The Ferris Wheel will be very popular over the coming four months, bringing many people to the local area.”

The wheel will operate until October, allowing plenty of time for residents and tourists to enjoy the views from one of the 24 gondolas. Each gondola can accommodate up to six people, with an accessible gondola designed for wheelchair users.

Many people have been taking advantage of the experience since it opened in May, taking sunset rides and snapping photos of the wheel lit up at night.

Skyline Attractions has also operated giant Ferris Wheels at locations in Melbourne, Glenelg, the Sunshine Coast and Darwin.

Jane said local businesses would soon be given the chance to collaborate with Skyline Attractions.  

“We love to work closely with businesses in every area we place our wheels,” Jane said. “In the coming weeks, we will be releasing packages local businesses can purchase, enabling them to easily package up their product with ours.”

The Ferris Wheel will operate seven days a week from 10am to 9pm, depending on the weather.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and children between the ages of two and 11. Children under two are admitted free. Gondolas for six people are available for $50. Surcharges apply on public holidays.Tickets can be purchased at the on-site ticket box or online at
