    Local Attractions:
  • Architecture – There are many fine examples of Karoo architecture in the town. (eg) The “old jail” is a small stone building in Church Street dating back to 1900. Probably the best example of a Victorian-styled house can be seen on Church Square.
  • Bird Watching – There are Several Dams on farms in the vicinity that may be visited for Bird Watching. Ask your Guesthouse Owner or the locals for up-to-date information.
  • Corbelled Houses – These unique stone dwellings, shaped like old-fashioned beehives, can be found only in a small area of the Karoo, roughly between Loxton, Fraserburg, Williston, and Carnarvon. They were built from 1811 onwards by the early trekboers (migratory farmers) out of local stone & have no supporting roof beams. To arrange a tour,(tel) Steve 053 381 3091 / 073 176 5738.
  • Ixam Waterhole – Between Loxton and Fraserburg an /Xam-San waterhole can be seen alongside the road.
  • NG Church (Kerk) – built in 1924 of local sandstone, this very attractive building has a red tiled roof, rose-windows, and in summer it’s partially covered by a lush green vine.
  • Replica Dutch Castle & Windmill – Oom Jan Hugo, an eccentric rancher, had always wanted to live in a castle. After a visit to Holland in the 1970s, he set about building himself one from a sketch he’d made on a cigarette box, and each time he needed further details, he’d fly to Holland and make more drawings. Set amongst dolerite koppies (hills) this three-storey castle, with its turrets capped with inverted cones and forty-four crenulated parapets, looks more like it belongs in a fairytale, than in the Karoo. A replica Dutch windmill was built not far from the castle. Viewing of this private dwelling is by appointment only. Tel 053 3812 ask for 1103.
  • San Sculptures (Voetspoor Hiking Trail) - This 13km hiking trail crosses Karoo veld before winding through a small rocky ravine where Verreaux's Eagles (Black Eagles) nest, and up onto a plateau. It is here that the well-known sculptress, Marcella de Boom, built ‘The Dance’ - a circle of life-size bushmen sculptures - with the help of farm owner, the late John Sinclair. To book this hiking trail, telephone Steve Moseley on 053 381 3091 / 073 176 5738 or Mrs Sinclair on 0533812 ask for 1522.
