    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
