This little town has a distinct Victorian character and offers a wide range of experiences, from cultural to historical to eco.

Three botanical kingdoms converge here, namely the Nama-Karoo vegetation, succulents in the Knersvlakte and fynbos (Cape Flora) in the mountains.

Don´t you ever get the urge to lie back and watch dramatic stars come alive in a black velvet sky? Do you sometimes yearn for a space so vast that the horizon disappears into forever? Well then this is the place for you. 

Experience the world´s only quartz succulent trail and the biggest nursery of these fascinating plants, adventure routes and hiking trails, waterfalls and delightful water features and wild flowers.

The botanic diversity bursts into a kaleidoscope of colour every spring, offering excellent flower viewing. Hiking trails, scenic drives, historical buildings, stargazing and outdoor activities make this the ideal place to visit.
