One of the state's oldest Hotels, the Normanville
Hotel was established in 1851 and has been owned and managed by
the Blacklock family since the early 1970's.
In 2003 the hotel was redeveloped in order to meet the changing
needs of the local community and in particular the large influx
of tourists at peak season.
The family's vision of the redevelopment was such that the historical
richness and beauty of the hotel was maintained while expanding
and modernising the dining areas.
Normanville (postcode 5204) is a small rural town near the coast
of the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia. It is situated next
to the Bungala River.
Normanville is 1 km south of Carrickalinga and 3 km west of Yankalilla.
With lovely beaches, it is a popular beach holiday destination.
The town has a rich heritage and was founded by a dentist named
Dr Robert Norman in 1850 on his property. Dr Norman established
a small town by opening the Normanville Hotel on 1851 and a church
The Normanville Hotel hosted the first district council meeting
for the area. The town eventually grew to become a successful
wheat exporting area, using the nearby jetty at the current Normanville
Beach as a port for ships coming and going.
However after the opening of Adelaide as the capital city, it
lost its prior importance. Although there was no longer a dominant
wheat trade in the area any more, the beautiful town continued
to blossom on a tourist industry, using the Normanville Beach,
old historic buildings and the Normanville Hotel as main focal
points for visitors. The town eventually grew a successful shopping
centre, a kiosk, large residential areas and a string of high
quality shops down the main street.
The town is currently a great holiday destination and has plenty
of options for great food and accommodation. Normanville
is situated near the Fleurieu Wine Region and is the perfect spot
to base your Fleurieu Peninsula holiday.
