eagle skylift, arthurs seat

There is something incredibly peaceful and tranquil about the Arthurs Seat Skylift. It could be the reason it is called the eagle. You soar, slowly, up the hill without a sound. Mamma is tempted to whisper to the family as not to disturb the peace. The sound you are mostly to hear apart from the birds chirping, will the the gasp you will make at the view. It is stunning. From the Dandenong Ranges in the east, the mouth of the bay in the west and the entire front beaches of the Peninsula, you won't get a better view of the place we call home. 

The gondolas are roomy with ability to take eight passengers and a small pram would fit nicely too. Once you take the 15 minute journey uphill it goes without saying - you have to have a sit on Arthur Seat, explore the lookout, check out the walking tracks and grab a snack from the cafe. 

Mamma's special mention: Each Thursday during January there will be a boutique market set up at Base Station from 10am - 3pm.
