Day 2. Mornington Magic (BLD)
We leave the city for the picturesque Mornington Peninsula where a brand new attraction will take you sky high. You will step board a state-of-the-art gondola at the Arthurs Seat Eagle and fly over the state forest to the highest point of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. You will be torn between looking at the breathtaking view across the bay to the city or spotting wildlife as you soar high above the trees. Either way you have a bird’s eye view! At the Summit Station, lunch and more views can be enjoyed at Eagle Café before returning on the gondola. In the afternoon we travel to the tip of the peninsula, Point Nepean National Park for some of Victoria’s most beautiful natural landscapes and to discover the rich heritage. The shuttle bus will be the perfect opportunity to travel the park before we then return to Melbourne.
