Elwood: Minutes To Melbourne, Walking Distance To The Beach

Elwood is a waterfront suburb located eight kilometres south of Melbourne. The suburb is known for its unique blend of architectural styles, featuring Victorian, Edwardian, and interwar architecture alongside more contemporary buildings. With its beaches and streets lined with London palms, it's no surprise the neighbourhood has seen a good amount of gentrification in recent years. 

Elwood's Best Attraction: Elwood Beach

Elwood's claim to fame among Melburnians is Elwood Beach, a bayside beach that's immensely popular among residents and holiday makers alike in the summertime. Hit the beach during the day or stroll the walking path in the evening. Bikers can hit the Elwood Beach cycle track. Windsurfing and cricket are also popular pastimes. 

Another popular outdoor attraction is Elwood Park, located right along the beach and the Ormond Esplanade. Here you'll find plenty of grassy spaces for picnics and barbeques for quick dinners or lunches.  

Melbourne Accommodation In Elwood

Elwood accommodation is as varied as the residents themselves. You'll find Victorian mansions alongside interwar apartment buildings, cosy Edwardian homes alongside sleek modern housing. As a result, Elwood holiday rentals vary widely in style and amenities. 

Want to stay in a mansion without paying full price? You might like to stay in one of the neighbourhood's mansion-style apartments. These stylish luxury apartments are usually in partitioned parts of historic mansions, so you can live the life of luxury without paying the five-star price. 

Most Elwood accommodation is fully accessible by tram or bus. If you'd prefer to take your car into Melbourne, the drive is only about 15 minutes long.

What To Do In And Around Elwood

The main shopping and commercial strip in Elwood is Ormond Road. It's here where you'll find most of Elwood's trendy shops and bars. The street is dotted with wine bars, cafes, restaurants, and takeaway places. Unsure of where to go? Try local favorites like the Blue Tongue Wine Bar or Easy Fifteen.

If you're looking for one of Melbourne's hottest restaurant and nightlife scenes, take the short walk to St. Kilda. One of Melbourne's best-known suburbs, St. Kilda has the highest density of restaurants in the outer city. The vibe is bohemian and chic, with plenty of cafes, cake shops, delis, and trendy nightlife hotspots. Pop in on Sunday for the neighbourhood's vibrant arts-and-crafts market.

You might want to schedule a day at Luna Park, a fun park that's been open in Melbourne for over a hundred years. For thrills, you'll want to get in line for Enterprise or Pharoah's Curse, though the park has classics like the ferris wheel and carousel as well. 

Quieter than St. Kilda, but more laid-back than Melbourne's city: if that sounds like your ideal neighbourhood, Elwood is the perfect holiday spot for you.

Great location

4 of 5
Enjoyed 5 wonderful nights at this property which presented lovely & clean and was very conveniently located to practically everything in Melbourne. Comfy beds and perfect for two couples to stay with each having their own bathroom. Only negative if you are a lighter sleeper is the close proximity to the trains across Flinders Street, which got quite noisy later in the evening/ early morning (ear plugs were provided if required). Rob was communicative, very helpful and met us on site on arrival.
