The eclectic mix of housing styles and wide tree-lined streets amaze most newcomers to Elwood. From the glory of Art Deco and the beautiful mix of Californian Bungalow and Edwardian styles to the style and sophistication of the newly designed townhouses and the best of contemporary homes, this suburb has it all. Elwood boasts the only canal in metropolitan Melbourne and a stroll along its manicured banks provides a delightful course to the beach. Locals are spoilt for choice, with an excellent selection of cafes, restaurants and bars. It is widely believed that Elwood took its name from the Quakers historian poet, Thomas Elwood; and many of the street names such as Poets Grove, Shelley Street and Dickens Street support that theory. There is also a big water influence in the street names, Foam, Spray, Wave and Tide all conjure up visions of how Elwood may have looked way back in the 1840s when the immigrant ship The Glen Huntley first landed. With an array of parks, sporting clubs and educational facilities, ranging from preschools to a myriad of choices in primary and secondary schooling, Elwood is fast becoming Melbourne’s hot spot for family living.
