On 21 October 1840, Richard Blundell was granted the title to Section 801 Hundred of Noarlunga. This was subsequently subdivided and by 1866 the town was described as a regional centre ‘in the midst of a fine agricultural district, where wheat, peas, and potatoes are largely grown’.
In the last 20 years a restoration programme has seen the town’s heritage buildings restored.
