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 Manna Gums, grazing kangaroos and the trace of distant coastlines, you are immersed in a truly majestic Australian landscape.

There are many other walking tracks across the park that provide visitors with the opportunity to explore the park and appreciate its wide variety of flora and fauna.

 

THE GONDOLAS

Arthurs Seat Eagle is an aerial gondola system, which is supported and propelled by cables from above. It consists of a loop of steel cable that is strung between two stations, over 11 supporting towers. The cable is driven by a bullwheel (a large pulley) at the base and summit stations, connected to an electric motor.

The flight carries passengers between the Base Station in Dromana to the summit of Arthurs Seat, passing high over the beautiful Arthurs Seat State Park. The lift has the ability to travel at a maximum speed of 3m/s (10.8kph) but we generally run it at 1.5m/s (5.4kph) so guests can enjoy the view.

The Eagle is all inclusive and caters to the disabled, elderly, frail and toddlers. It is wheelchair and pram friendly. A combination of enclosed and open cabins provides an all-weather experience for passengers.
