Celebrate the holidays at the Eagle…

There’s excitement in the air and big prizes to be won at the Arthurs Seat Eagle this school holidays, as they prepare to welcome their one millionth guest!

Located at the summit of Arthurs Seat State Park, Arthurs Seat Eagle takes you to the best views of the Mornington Peninsula and beyond.  Already the Peninsula’s premier must-see tourist destination, the Eagle has seen an extra surge in popularity.  A new family ticket has provided great value for families, the steady introduction of new products and food offerings has tempted locals, and the world’s best practice in Covid safety has ensured that, across the board, everyone has been more eager than ever to fly.

These high visitor numbers over summer have ensured that the Eagle will sell their one millionth ticket during this school holidays, and the Arthurs Seat Eagle team couldn’t be happier.  “We’ve been tracking our attendance figures for a while” explains Eagle CEO, Matthew Mulkearns, “and when we realised that we were on track to reach one million paid guests during the Easter school holidays… well, we could hardly believe our luck!  We knew we were going to have to do something huge to celebrate!”

Millionth Visitor celebrations will take place throughout the school holidays.  The Eagle is open to the public every day over Easter, including Good Friday, with discounted tickets available to those who book online (visit www.aseagle.com.au).  There’s a real festival feel to the party planning, with fun activities for kids, themed café offerings, spot prizes, competitions and live music. 

A long-time local landmark, defining the skyline of Dromana and Safety Beach, the Eagle is fondly regarded by tourists and locals alike, with many locals keen to reminisce and raise a toast on the expansive outdoor deck to celebrate the milestone.

The gondola ride itself is, of course, always magnificent: when you ride in one of the world class gondolas, you will feel on top of the world.  Whether you start at the Base Station, or soar from the Summit, you can expect a 15 minute journey each way in your own gondola.

And just who is going to be the lucky winner?  While they can’t determine exactly when that lucky millionth ticket will be sold, or who the winner will be, the millionth paid visitor is going to be richly rewarded.  “It’s so exciting!” Mulkearns enthuses, “We can’t wait to meet this amazing milestone and celebrate this occasion with our lucky winner!”
