If you're someone who enjoys food and wine or attending major events, then Port Phillip has all the things to keep you busy while your partner, friend or family member catches a fish. These include adventure parks, restaurants, wineries, museums and festivals.
During your stay, spend time in nature and the great outdoors! Take the family on a boat tour of Port Phillip to swim with dolphins and seals, or take a drive to one of the many parks and gardens to enjoy a picnic.
