  2. This is the worst top 10 list for Melbourne that has ever existed. Obviously created by someone that has never been to Australia as they have missed many more important attractions. Melbourne Star as #1 is the icing on the cake, it is Melbourne's equivalent of the Shelbyville Monorail, you would be hard pressed finding a local who has even taken a ride on it.
