Woy Woy, Elwood

Woy Woy, Elwood

Woy Woy is one of my favourite Melbourne buildings.

Designed by Geoffrey Mewton and constructed in 1936 it is ideally sited on Marine Parade near Elwood Canal.

It is a bit crowded in by it's neighbours now but for a short while there a couple of years ago there were vacant sites on either side and Woy Woy stood in beautiful isolation.

The St Kilda Historical Society have included a great write-up on Woy Woy in their publication A Place Sensuous Resort - Buildings of St Kilda and their People
