Half price flights and $6 Devonshire teas

Grab the Senior's Card and hit the heights.

Every Thursday from the 1 June 2019, 10:00 am to 18 August 2019, 4:00 pm, you can take in the scenic views above the Mornington Peninsula, across Port Phillip Bay, towards the city skyline and beyond with a half-price return gondola flight.

Arthur's Seat Eagle is also throwing in a $6 Devonshire Tea. Just dig out your Senior's Card to get these great specials.

The gondolas soar over the State forest to Arthur's Seat the highest point of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula where the views are breathtaking.

The ride offers views over the bay to the city or over the Peninsula and there is a chance to spot wildlife as you soar high above the trees.

The high-flying Eagle is Mornington Peninsula's newest attraction.

This is a smooth glide of a journey with easy entry and exit points rather than more bumpy one you may remember from your youth.

You can board at either the Base Station in Dromana or the Summit Station at the top of Arthurs Seat but you are required to go both ways.

The Eagle Café, is at the top and there are walking trails through the Arthurs Seat State Park.

I'd also recommend a stop when you are driving back down for lunch at Heronswood a historic Arts and Crafts House (circa 1870 Gothic).

There are stunning seasonal gardens here and the Digger's Club nursery. They use their own seasonal produce in your lunch. No cut-price senior's meal, unfortunately.
