Eagle Skylift

by Lorraine A (follow)
The all new Eagle Skylift at Arthurs Seat has officially opened and is now ready for you to enjoy the scenic gondola ride from the foothills of Dromana to the peak of Arthur's Seat which stands at 305 meters above sea level.



You can take a one way or a return trip starting from either the Dromana Base station or the Arthurs Seat Summit station. If you are taking a one way trip than I would suggest that you board the gondola from the Summit station so you can take full advantage of the magnificent views across Port Phillip Bay towards the city skyline.

Summit station


After a visit today I was impressed with how quiet the gondola ride is and that you can still hear the birds and the hum of the traffic below if you are in an open cabin. Whilst it doesn't have that same nostalgic feel of the old chair lift I'm sure it will be popular with visitors to the Mornington Peninsula.

Take the majesty of a world-class orchestra, stir in your favourite festive tunes and sprinkle over a large pinch of musical magic. The result? Christmas with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra!
