A Fun Day Out
Arthurs Seat Eagle - Gliding quietly through the sky in a gondola at Arthurs Seat Eagle, you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve been transported a million miles away, rather than one hour’s drive from Melbourne. With uninterrupted views, framed by swaying gum trees and birdsong, grazing kangaroos and the trace of distant coastlines, you are immersed in a truly majestic Australian landscape. Named in honor of the Wedge-tailed Eagle, indigenous to the area and revered in local Aboriginal lore, the Eagle experience is one of flight through an area steeped in history and surrounded by nature. Gliding above and past the trees, you ride inside comfortable, all weather and fully accessible cabins. It’s an awe-inspiring journey as you ascend quietly up Arthurs Seat to the summit station.
The Enchanted Adventure Garden - has recently opened their new 2-acre space which features a boardwalk and new hedge maze complete with viewing platform. A visit in autumn is the perfect time to see the gardens change, and with so many ways to get a bird’s eye view it’s an experience worth making time for. Great for kids, big and small.
Dromana Drive-In - Dromana drive in is a great night out. Watch new release movies under the stars after a visit to the very cool diner. Only 1.6km from Safety Beach
