Take Dad to new heights at the Eagle this Father's Day!

On Dad's big day, Arthurs Seat Eagle is pulling out all the stops with a classic car show, delicious gourmet BBQ, spot prizes and FREE return rides for Dads! That sure beats another tie or pair of socks!

It's all happening on Sunday 2nd September from 10am and Father's Day tickets are only available from the ticket box on the day.*


On this spring day, you and Dad can soar over the Mornington Peninsula in a state of the art gondola cabin. The all-weather Eagle safely carries passengers between the Base Station in Dromana to the summit of Arthurs Seat, passing high over the beautiful State Park. Passengers can board at either station.

The ride is approximately 14 minutes each way and the cabin is wheelchair and pram friendly.


After enjoy the sky-high experience, it's time to check out the classic cars from the Southern Peninsula Car Club on display.

Come lunchtime, treat Dad to a tasty treat from the Father's Day BBQ! There is also the Eagle Cafe located at the Summit Station, where you can enjoy a delicious range of food including award-winning pies, fresh gourmet rolls, sandwiches, salads and wraps, warm scones with jam and cream, locally baked goods from Johnny Ripe and a decadent range of sweet treats for the whole family. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are also available.

You can also celebrate Father's Day with locally produced wine, beer and cider from Crittenden Estate, T'Gallant, Foxey's Hangout, Mornington Peninsula Brewery and Mock Red Hill which are all served in the licensed cafe. The 200th Dad to purchase a ticket on the day will win a slab of beer from Dromana's own Jetty Road Brewery.


After lunch, head off on one of the many walking tracks through the surrounding Arthurs Seat State Park. Seawinds Gardens offers a combination of indigenous and exotic formal gardens and the William Ricketts sculpture collection make these gardens a popular destination.
