Fleurieu Peninsula

Normy Summer Beach Fest to return for 2022

The Normanville foreshore will transform into the ultimate kid’s haven with plenty of awesome activities, sweet treats and competitions to enter.

Who doesn’t love Summer! And to celebrate one of our favourite seasons, Normanville Surf Life Saving Club is hosting an epic family experience this January!

The family-friendly Normy Summer Beach Fest is taking place this January 17, which will see the beloved beachfront turn into a seaside wonderland, with giant games, beach volleyball and cricket, live music and loads of food between 10am and 3pm.

The Normanville foreshore will transform into the ultimate kids’ haven with plenty of awesome activities, sweet treats and competitions to enter.

Normanville Surf Life Saving Club Volunteers will facilitate some friendly competitions for all age groups at the Beach Fest starting at noon. These include fun flag games on the sand (5-8 years old), a swim/run/swim race for those aged 8 to 12 and a longer swimming and running race around the pontoon for those 13 years and older.

All of the activities are free to enter and there will be prizes on the day! However, all participants must have a strong swimming ability for aquatic competitions.

For those aged 10 and older wanting to test their balance, Reclink Australia will be hosting stand-up paddleboard lessons, for the brave at heart.

Darren Burgess, Tourism and Events Team Leader at Fleurieu Coast visitor centre says the beach fest is a very exciting day for the peninsula.

“One thing not many people know about is how amazing our natural attractions are. We are only 90 minutes from Adelaide and around 40 minutes from Onkaparinga and we have all these amazing nature walks and a relaxing lifestyle,” said Darren.

“It’s a great day for locals and tourists to get out and enjoy our natural resources.”

“The beach fest is an annual school holiday event with lots  of beach activities, stand up paddleboarding and some food and drink sales that everyone can enjoy in the natural environment by the sea.”

The outdoor event has covid-safe protocols in place which will be managed by the Normanville Surf Life Saving Clubs covid marshalls. 

For visitors wanting to turn their beach getaway into a mini-holiday, Darren recommends exploring the natural wonders of the region. 

“We have many many many attractions down here and so many of them are in nature. The Deep Creek to Second Valley hike is amazing, we have Ingalalla Falls as well as many cafes, bars and breweries as well as the Myponga Reservoir where people can Kayak and Canoe, we also have great fishing; as well as the icons of Cape Jervis, Second Valley beach and Rapid Bay.”
