This summer, Melburnians can enjoy a big dose of coastal cool without leaving the city. And all while cruising through the sky, peaking at around 40-storeys or 120 metres high.

It's thanks to the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel's new season makeover, which has seen some of its private cabins transformed into colourful summer beach boxes, replete with deck chairs and pool toys.

The Docklands' tourist attraction boasts sweeping 360-degree views across Melbourne and its surrounds, from the Mornington Peninsula through to Geelong and Mount Macedon. And from November 26 until January 28, they're best enjoyed in a fun new light, as part of the Star's Summer Beach Box Experience.

You can book in for a private 30-minute flight in one of the new temperature-controlled, beach-themed cabins, soaking up those panoramas while sipping fruity sangria and grazing through a selection of cheese and dips — all included in the ticket price.

Round up the crew for a six-person session priced at $65 each, or to share the experience with just one special someone, opt for the $360 two-person flight.

It's not the first time this year the Melbourne Star has embraced a new persona — last month it masqueraded as a performance space, hosting a revolving celebration of live tunes for Melbourne Music Week.

The sky-high beach boxes are available to book between 1-9pm, running daily except for Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Australia Day.
