The Eagle Arthurs Seat is a contemporary reinstatement of the iconic Victorian tourist destination. Providing an all-assessable / all-weather gondola ride that soars through the tree canopies to the summit, revealing spectacular panoramic views of the Port Phillip Bay.

This experience is bookended by a refined architecture that seeks to respond to the State Park setting, while providing a clear destination point. Both the Lower and Upper Stations have strong rectilinear forms and a minimal material pallet.

Both buildings seek to maximise views outwardly towards the bay and inwardly to the mechanics of the gondola system, in particular the bullwheels.
