Norwell is a farming district which stretches along the northern banks of the Pimpama River and is bounded in the north east by the Pimpama - Jacobs Well Road.
The area takes its name from Norwell plantation which was operated by sugar planter, William Pidd in the 1870s.
At one time, the district boasted a sugar tramway, a state school and Lutheran and Apostolic churches.
Today the Apostolic Church is the only public building remaining in the district.
