Look up in the sky…. is it a bird, is it a plane? – No…it’s the new Arthurs Seat Eagle!
Yesterday Arthurs Seat Eagle received a stamp of approval from thrilled Red Hill Primary School students yesterday who lined up for their first gondola ride.
Robyn Lain, who was one of the first to ride the old Arthurs Seat Chair lift when it opened in 1960, was among the lucky people to experience the ride first hand.
The Eagle offers views across Port Phillip Bay, Geelong, the You Yangs and Western Port Bay. Hans Brugman, Eagle Skylift chief said it’s one of the safest gondola systems in the world.
The 32 gondola structure cost $16m.
