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.
