Elwood Beach and the foreshore reserve, is a popular area used for a range of activities. The beach is the site of the Elwood Life Saving Club, the Elwood Bowling Club and Sea Scouts and Sailing Club. Extensive car parking and a park, picnic area and oval back the beach. The beach itself is 1300 m long, extending from the Head Street diversion drain up to a groyne on Point Ormond. It faces the south-west and receives sufficient waves to produce a double bar system. The inner bar alternates between a shallow, attached section and deeper rip channels, with a trough separating it from the rhythmic outer bar. Low waves break on the inner bar, particularly at low tide, while strong winds and higher waves are required to activate the outer bar, during which time the rip currents intensify.
The Tan is a 3.827 kilometre perimeter track around Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Garden. It consists of sandy-coloured stone gravel except for one section called Anderson Street. The gravel provides slightly less grip than asphalt, but delivers lower impact. One of the excellent running aspects of the Tan, is although there is an official start-finish line near Swan Street Bridge, named the Pillars of Wisdom, starting a run or walk anywhere and in either direction is easy as there are distance markers every 250 metres, and two large digital time clocks at the start/finish and halfway points.
