          October 2017- I, my family and some friends had the chance to enjoy the view of the state forest up to the highest point of the Mornington Peninsula aboard the Arthurs Seat Eagle. As one of the tourist attractions of Victoria, this state of the art gondola and termed as Eagle can carry passengers from the summit of Arthurs Seat going down to the Base station and vice versa. 

         On top of it, it also has a combination of enclosed and open cabins to provide an all weather experience for passengers.

For 15 minutes, the passengers can enjoy the view from the top seeing the wonderful scenery of Mornington Peninsula including Dromana itself.

          According to its recent history, "the Gondolas was installed in 2016. This happened after the previous chairlift suffered and encountered accidents thus resulting to its years of planning and looking for a new management.
By early 2013, the old pylons were removed and the top stations was demolished. The Arthurs Seat lookout tower was also demolished after many years of being unsafe to operate due to concrete cancer. 

          In June 2014, Mornington Shire Council approved the plans for the new chairlift. Construction works for the new chair lift- the Skylift- and associated upper and lower complexes began in 2015 and was due to be completed in the Summer of 2016/2017." ---Source:,_Victoria

            With the surrounding panorama, we could not help but greatly appreciate what we observed around us. After the ride, we visited the rest of the scenes at the peak and shared our bountiful blessings. Thus, for any visitor of Victoria, local and non- local,
if ever he has the chance to visit Arthurs Eagle Seat, then he will surely appreciate everything on it.
