Arthurs Seat - Cities, Towns and Localities

Located in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula hinterland, Arthurs Seat is one of Victoria’s scenic attractions that provide a great day out throughout the year.

Stretching to 314 metres above sea level, the landmark granite peak of Arthurs Seat is a familiar site, providing spectacular views across the Peninsula and Port Phillip Bay. On a clear day the view extends to the city Melbourne skyline, the You Yangs and Mount Macedon.

With the Arthurs Seat State Park making up a significant part of the area, it makes for a popular destination with great lookouts, scenic walking tracks, picnic and barbeque areas, and of course the natural local flora and fauna.

The flora of the area includes Sheoak and Messmate woodland on the northern slopes to manna gum and swamp gum forests. It is also a protected habitat for many species of wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, ringtail and brush tail possums, honeyeaters, lorikeets and eastern rosellas.

Other things to do include a one hour circuit walk to Kings Falls and the interesting Seawinds Garden with lookouts and a number of several sculptures by William Ricketts.
