Soar the heights of the Mornington Peninsula with scenic views across Port Phillip Bay towards Melbourne, around the coast and beyond.
Gliding quietly through the sky in a gondola at Arthurs Seat Eagle, you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve been transported a million miles away, rather than one hour’s drive from Melbourne. With uninterrupted views, framed by swaying gum trees and birdsong, grazing kangaroos and the trace of distant coastlines, you are immersed in a truly majestic Australian landscape.
Named in honour of the Wedge-tailed Eagle, indigenous to the area and revered in local Aboriginal lore, the Eagle gondola experience is one of flight through an area steeped in history and surrounded by nature. Soaring above and past the trees, you ride inside comfortable, all weather and fully accessible cabins. It’s an awe-inspiring journey as you ascend quietly up Arthurs Seat to the summit station.
At the top enjoy a quality, casual dining experience at The Eagle Café. With amazing views from nearly every table and an expansive outdoor deck, there’s plenty of room to sit with a coffee and a snack or even a local wine or beer. Among the interactive displays you’ll also find locally made and inspired gift ware along with Eagle souvenirs to remember your visit by.
Open daily from 10am (excl Christmas Day) Note: on extreme weather days the gondolas may not operate, please check our website and Facebook page for updates if forecasts indicate ‘strong winds’
