Welcome to the Breede Valley
Driving along the N1 out of the Breedekloof, you will be welcomed into the glorious town of Worcester, nestled in a golden valley with a selection of hidden gems for the whole family to discover.
Experience the Big 5 at Fairy Glen Reserve, or take the time to explore the 154 ha display of fauna and flora of the arid winter rainfall regions of Southern Africa in the Karoo Desert National Botanical Gardens, which is also accessible to the physically challenged. Or enjoy a touch of history at the Worcester Museum at Kleinplasie – the only living open air museum that depicts agricultural practices of the early 1800s to mid-1940s. The staff here offer year-round activities that show visitors how the pioneers used to live.
A magical ambiance awaits the fine art lover at The Hugo Naudé House and Jean Weltz Art Gallery. The Worcester area further boasts 12 wine cellars and the Willow Creek Olive estate on the Worcester Wine & Olive Route. Besides these recognised delights, a wonderful farmers’ market that is held on the first Saturday of every month, numerous free mountain biking trails and a few gorgeous examples of historical building styles are worthy of a visit.www.worcestertourism.com
