If you had to think of the best way to spend one hour, it might look something like this: soaring above a state park in an aerial gondola, sipping on sparkling wine with a couple of locally sourced nibbles in tow. Up until this month, that perfect hour didn’t exist. But the guys at Arthur’s Seat have changed all that.
One of the Mornington Peninsula’s most unique experiences, the Arthur’s Seat Eagle is back in operation, adding a showstopping Sparkling Saturdays to their roster. From 5pm to 6pm over three weekends this February (the first was on the 6th, while the other two are on the 13th and 20th), the experience allows guests to soak up sweeping views of Port Philip Bay and the city skyline in their own private aerial gondola.
The first experience of its kind in Australia, the aerial glides are perfect for any dynamic duo: couples, friends, strangers with a passion for great views. The Swiss-designed gondolas have space for prams, wheelchairs and are fully equipped for any weather, so whatever your accessibility needs, you’re catered for.
Inside, you’ll also find a grazing platter for two featuring goodies from local producers, including fresh fruit from D’Alia’s Fresh Produce, honeycomb by Medena Honey and handmade cookies from The Sweet Mum.
For those with a proper thirst, fear not; you can request a top-up when you pass through the station. And if alcohol isn’t your beverage of choice, the team have options for you too. Just imagine raising your glass as the sun dips below the tree canopy… The romance is strong.
Tickets are just $130 for two people, including a glass of T’Gallant sparkling wine each and the gourmet grazing board. Limited space is available, so make sure you book soon to not miss out.
