Seafield Tower History Circa 1876

By the mid-1880s, the sand dunes of Glenelg's esplanade had long given way to the summer residences of the prominent and wealthy of South Australia. Previously known as Albert Parade, and then Seawall, South Esplanade was once a promenade of magnificent Victorian mansions and summer gardens. With time, these mansions slowly began to occupy land beyond the dunes morphing Glenelg's streets into a suburb of character and charm.

State Heritage listed Seafield Tower was the first of its kind built along the esplanade. It was designed as two self-contained, 15 room summer residences for Sir Henry Ayers and Sir Thomas Elder, when both were in their late fifties. Ayers made his fortune from the Burra Copper Mines which secured the wealth and future of the colony of South Australia. Uluru - Ayers Rock in the Northern Territory is named in his honour. Elder was a pastoralist, businessman, philanthropist and politician. Ayers inhabited the northern side and Elder the southern side.

The southern side of Seafield Tower, previously the summer residence of Thomas Elder has been operated as beachfront holiday units for the past 60 years, originally designed in the 1950s as affordable seaside holiday accommodation for employees of Commonwealth Railways who maintained the rail network to Western Australia across the Nullarbor Plain and Alice Springs through Central Australia. Over the past three years, significant upgrading and refurbishment have been undertaken to a modern standard while retaining heritage aspects of the building.
