Arthurs Seat Eagle gets grand opening

Arthurs Seat Eagle gets grand opening
December 8, 2016

The long-awaited grand opening of the new $20 million Arthurs Seat Eagle tourism cable car ride took place on 3rd December, offering a new attraction for the Mornington Peninsula's 15.7 million annual visitors.

Following the opening, Arthurs Seat Eagle Chief Executive Hans Brugman stated "we are thrilled to be taking this next step with our Grand Opening, and we are excited that guests from throughout the region and all over the world will get to experience the excitement and adventure of soaring in our Eagles.

“This is the state’s only gondola ride, and it will be a tourism crown jewel, not just for the Peninsula, but for Victoria as a whole."

The new attraction has also focussed on accessibility, with the stations, gondolas and platforms designed to allow people with a wide range of abilities the opportunity to enjoy the attraction.

With the highest tower standing over 19 metres, this high-flying Eagle is set to soar over Arthurs Seat State Park, taking in a bird’s-eye view of the bay and the peninsula, across to the city and further afield.

A $20 million investment using world's-best-practice Austrian and Swiss technology, the Eagle is a global-class tourist attraction which has brought over 70 new jobs to the area.
