Elsternwick Plaza

Elsternwick Plaza is located in the heart of the Elsternwick activity centre, next to Elsternwick train station, local shops and cafes. The modern plaza of today was redeveloped in 2016 to create green space within an urban setting. It is also the start of the historic Rosstown Rail Trail that runs from the plaza and along Riddell Parade.
