Normanville Surf Club redevelopment complete

As thousands of holiday makers make their way to the Fleurieu Peninsula, the recently redeveloped Normanville Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) has reopened its doors to the public in time for the Christmas and New Year period.

The more than $7 million redevelopment of the clubrooms, together with a commercial café/kiosk under one roof, has been funded through a State Government partnership with the District Council of Yankalilla and the Normanville SLSC.

Visitors to the club will be able to enjoy the full benefits of the new facilities, with the rebuild resulting in greater amenities and additional safety for beachgoers.

A new access ramp from the club to the beach and a relocated first aid room will support quicker emergency responses with improved beach and ambulance accessibility.

In March the club will host its first major Surf Life Saving event following the rebuild, as the Masters State Championships take place in Normanville.

The bar will be open from midday Saturday and 11:30am Sunday, with the club opening its kitchen for dinner service on Saturday’s and lunch on Sunday’s.

Member for Mawson, Leon Bignell, said the facility was a great collaboration between the state government, Yankalilla Council, Surf Lifesaving SA and of course all the wonderful volunteers at the Normanville club.

“Normanville and Carrickalinga are already stunning places to visit but now the new kiosk and surf club will make our beautiful part of the world an even bigger drawcard.”

The State Government is committed to working with surf clubs across the State to make them places worth visiting, and to equip them so that they can help keep South Australian beachgoers safe, according to Emergency Services Minister, Jo Szakacs.

“This is a welcomed moment for the surf life saving community, for locals and for visitors to our picturesque Fleurieu Peninsula, who will get full benefit out of the new facilities,” the Minister said.
