Up, Up and Away at The New Arthurs Seat Chairlift, Arthurs Seat, Victoria, Australia

Arthurs Seat was named after a mountain near Edinburgh, Scotland by Lieutenant John Murray during the first exploration of Port Phillip Bay in 1802. Captain Matthew Flinders later climbed the mountain on foot and glowingly recorded the view from the summit in his journal. These days traveling to Arthurs Seat is not so arduous!

Parking is available at the base and top of the chairlift, so you can choose a one-way or a return trip to reach the summit.

Once you're 'on top of the world', everything is no more than five minutes apart. Walking trails for the more energetic lead from the formal beauty of Seawinds Gardens around the forested slopes of the State Park, visiting fern glades and a waterfall.

And when the exploring is done, excellent picnic and free barbeque facilities are located under the trees on 5 acres of grassland.
