Normanville

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.
