Elements Coastal Activity Park at Wyndham Harbor
This coastal park offers you a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. The Elements is located on a stretch of coastline that, until now, has remained largely undiscovered.
Inspired by nature, as well as the rich agricultural and maritime history of Werribee and its surroundings, the foundations of this park were made from materials with a connection to the community. This includes salvaged timber from the nearby marina and repurposed 120-year-old railway sleepers from the old Geelong rail. There are also comfortable, carefully constructed natural habitats for native bird and bat communities. The landscape was created with sustainability in mind. Native and native flora and grasses are used to promote biodiversity, and the mini-golf green requires no watering.
“When it came to The Elements, we wanted to make sure we respected this beautiful stretch of coast and were as environmentally conscious as possible with our practices, design and offering,” said Eamon Walmsley, Director from Wyndham Harbour. “We wanted to touch the earth lightly when it came to the natural landscape and used native plants, grasses and salvaged materials wherever possible to amplify the natural beauty of the area, rather than change it altogether.”
18-hole mini-golf course
This mini golf course embraces the natural environment of land, sky and sea. You can book ahead or take it easy and switch spontaneously. It is open every day, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets for under 16s are $10. Adult tickets are $15 and a family of two children and two adults is $40, with an additional $5 for each additional child.
I’m hungry? Be sure to stop by the trendy restaurant, 3030 Boulevard, for wood-fired pizzas, burgers and snacks. Stay cool with a cold brew, sip cocktails or unwind with a glass of wine. You can pre-order your snacks on the golf course, and you can also reserve a picnic basket to enjoy in the picnic areas. It is open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Get your barista brew from this recycled shipping container. They also have a growing menu filled with fresh produce, serving warm pies and tasty rolls for a casual breakfast or lunch. The Coffee Corner is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Walk around Wyndham Harbor and follow the water’s edge. Nearby you will find a small cove with access to a beach. Admire the sea, feel the sand between your toes and enjoy dazzling views of the Melbourne skyline.
Enjoy a picnic on the sandy cove or stretch out on the lush lawn. Bring your own food or reserve a basket at 3030 Boulevard.
Sailing school (coming soon)
The Elements will soon help you navigate the sea, with a future sailing school settling into a converted container ship house.
