  WHAT’S LIVING IN Elwood LIKE?

Eight kilometers south of the Melbourne CBD is the waterfront suburb of Elwood. Residents here get the twin benefits of being close to the city and a mellower life by the bay. In the summertime, the beach fills up with locals. There are a shops around, but they mainly come for a nice jog along the sand, windsurfing, cycling, or cricket.

Elwood is decorated with green parks filled with happy children and young couples. Most residents live in a mix of Victorian homes, Edwardian cottages, and interwar apartment buildings. If you are searching for a quiet, beachside living experience with urban adventure just around the corner, Elwood could be the next place you call home.  

Elwood is bordered on the north by St Kilda, on the east by Balaclava and Ripponlea, on the south by Brighton, and on the west by Port Phillip Bay.
