Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Disappointed..... Escape Discovery Adventures has wonderful reviews, but terrible customer service skills. Emailed 3 weeks ago about information for a shore excursion, for the day our ship is in port, told website would be updated in 3 days, still not updated and have sent 2 additional emails, NO RESPONSE. Not sure how Paul stays in business.

I suggest you don't have to spend 2 nights at Philip Island. Spend 2 days at Mt Buller there is much more to enjoy there. Philip Island activity can be completed in just 1 day.
