Beachside Normanville has become a mecca for many holiday makers because of its close proximity to Adelaide. It's just one of the peaceful and picturesque coastal hamlets to be found along the Fleurieu Peninsula. Normanville boasts a safe swimming beach with expanses of white sand, a jetty to amble along, and a charming beachside cafe and store. Normanville is great for swimming, fishing and beach activities. Families enjoy staying at the friendly beachside caravan parks. It's a fantastic base to discover the delights of the region, including the wildlife, country markets, galleries, or just making castles on the sand. The town is 75 kilometres south of Adelaide. Mr Robert Norman planned the town in 1835 and gave it his name. See more of the Fleurieu Peninsula and a coastal playground famed for its laidback lifestyle, beach breaks for surfers of all levels of experience, and top fishing spots. It's a paradise for divers and snorkellers, with dramatic shipwrecks and stunning marine life, including the famed Leafy Seadragon. Enjoy some of the best produce and vineyards in Australia. The Fleurieu Peninsula is home to some prestigious winemaking regions, including McLaren Vale. The history of winemaking in this region goes all the way back to 1842, and it consistently produces some of the best drops you'll ever taste. There's also national parks, golf courses, top quality cuisine and more.


Normanville: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Normanville Hotel

Established in 1851 by Robert Norman, the Normanville Hotel is well over 160 years old! Some original wooden roof shingles remain in the roof cavity above the bar.

The hotel hosted the first meeting of the newly formed Yankalilla District Council in 1854. Court hearings were also held at the hotel until the local courthouse was built.

Many old bottles, coins and other historic items were discovered over the years. Some of these items are on display in the hotel. Old photos of the district are also on display. The hotel is featured in a local history trail.

The hotel was beautifully refurbished and expanded in 2003 to offer modern dining and function facilities while respecting the historic character and charm of the building. An outdoor dining area was added in 2013.

Situated in the seaside village of Normanville, the historic hotel offers friendly service, fresh a la carte dining, bar and take-away services with a strong emphasis on local products including locally produced wines and craft beer.
