8-MGD Arthurs Seat Eagle
|Vertical rise||232.0 m|
|Inclined length||1,030.0 m|
The detachable 8-passenger gondola lift, Arthurs Seat Eagle, replaces the region’s much-loved Arthurs Seat Chairlift and since December 2016 has been bringing guests up to the hill known as Arthurs Seat in Victoria. The ride opens up spectacular panoramic views across the national park and the bay on the Mornington Peninsula. Lightweight, removable polycarbonate panels and Safari barred windows make it possible to create the right ride experience to suit the season and the elements. In the winter, guests are protected against wind and weather; in the summer, they can enjoy the fresh air during their trip. All the cabins and the station buildings have barrier-free access. As well as making the Arthurs Seat region in general all the more attractive for tourists and local residents, the all-year lift installation has created 60 new jobs.
Doppelmayr was available on site as a reliable professional partner throughout the entire planning and implementation. The new gondola lift is a showcase project as it is the first continuous-movement monocable ropeway built outside a ski resort in Australia for 20 years.
