Shop, eat out, enjoy the beach and wander Elwood's iconic tree-lined streets.

Ever wondered where you could find a tree-lined village that seems away from the hustle and bustle, but is still close to the city? What if it had a beach too? Seems like an impossible wish list, right? Wrong! Elwood is the place of your dreams, and it even has a canal!

There's something for everyone in Elwood with its café culture, relaxed pace, charming streets and spectacular beach and city views.
