3184BeachPatrol Covering the Beautiful Elwood Beaches

3184 Beach Patrol

3184 Beach patrol looks after the beautiful Elwood beaches.  It is sandwiched between the 3182 and 3186 zones.  The Elwood beach is a particularly attractive beach for local families.  Its wide light coloured sandy beach with gentle lapping waves makes it an ideal picnic and swimming destination for family and friends.  When clean, the beach is a gorgeous site.  Lets keep it that way!

Elwood Beach Patrol dates for 2018:    We meet at 9 am, see next beach clean up info on the home page or our facebook page for details of meeting point.

Clean up locations are also updated in the "Next 3184 Beach Clean" box on the right hand side of this page.  The meeting location will be updated a few days prior to the clean up:
