Arthurs Seat State Park Summit


Arthurs Seat State Park Summit

As the highest viewpoint on the Mornington Peninsula, the summit lookout provides magnificent views of Port Phillip Bay. On a clear day, views stretch as far as the city skyline, the You Yangs and Mount Macedon.
Access to the summit lookout is via car or gondola from the tourist road. For a bird's-eye view over Port Phillip Bay climb aboard the all-weather Eagle, a state-of-the-art gondola which soars high above the trees. The Eagle caters to people of all abilities, the eldery and children. It is wheelchair and pram friendly.
Food and coffee is available at the summit station. Electric barbecues and picnic tables are located at Arthurs Seat Summit. A Changing Places toilet is available at Arthur's Seat Lower Station. Drinking water is not available at this location.

  • Visitor safety is our top priority and we advise people to please not to use any barbecue facilities that have been closed. We expect the impacted barbecues to reopen in the coming weeks.
