      Australia has a permanent spot on my list of places to visit. That being said, I'll probably have to take a trip to Melbourne as I travel around the country. The Southern Star Observation wheel seems quite intriguing, and I'd never pass up a scenic hour drive on the Great Ocean Road. Thanks for the Hub!
