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

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.
