Me and Miss C spent the day at Arthur’s Seat in the Mornington Peninsula this week. A friend of ours had a painting on display in an art gallery near to Mornington and she asked me to collect it for her which is what inspired our outing. After retrieving said art work, we drove to Arthur’s Seat to visit the Enchanted Adventure Garden. A family friendly park that included mazes, slides, an aerial playground and canopy walk. A steep entry fee of $60 for one adult and one child allowed us use of the grounds for the entire day. They also had a very fun looking high ropes course for an additional fee which we opted out of as we had a time constraint.
The adventure gardens had a lovely cafe with coffee, drinks and warm food in addition to a glorious hilltop view overseeing the entire grounds. A good place to caffeinate and make a plan for how to tackle the park’s many mazes. We loved the traditional Hedge Maze based off the one at Hampton Court Palace in England. We hadn’t been in a properly tall hedge maze in many years – it was awesome! Three of their mazes were brain teasers that you had to figure out as you go – my favourite one only allowed you to walk straight or turn left. It was good fun!
The park also had tube slides and many of them. You had the option to fly solo or share a larger tube with a child. Half the slides were closed as it was a school day but we had fun nonetheless. It’s amazing how quickly the feeling of youth-like joy overcame me. More of that please.
After much frolicking at the park we wanted to head down the road to ride the Eagle cable car down and back up the Arthur’s Seat hill (314m above sea level). We had the most glorious weather for it being a sunny and clear day. We could even see Melbs from the top albeit a small silhouette of it…we were 100km away! The return gondola journey is 30 minutes and it was so peaceful. A fun (and easy) day out to be sure.
