About Tulbagh

Tulbagh situated in the Tulbagh Valley bounded by the Witsenberg in the East, The Winterhoek range in the north and the Sarons, Obiekwa and Waterval (waterfall) mountains in the west.

This fertile valley with two prominent rivers running through it, the north flowing Berg River and the south- flowing Breede Riverand has a long history dating back further than 1699, named after Dutch Cape Colony Govenor Ryk Tulbagh originally called Het Land van Waveren.

This basin has been inhabited by the Khoi and Bushman people for thousands of years. The Tulbagh flower show is the oldest flower show in S. Africa being established in1887 and the area also produces wheat and a variety of deciduous fruit and sheep farming is also a contributor.

Today Tulbagh is the commercial hub of a wider district which includes some very fine wine estates such as Twee Jonge Gezellen-krone, Theuniskraal, Saronsberg, Oude Companies Post, Montpellier, Rijk`s, Drosty-Hof and Manley.

A Dutch Reformed church was built in 1743 for the congregation, The Drostdy (magistrates) residence was built in 1806, designed by architect Louis Thibault, located 4km`s north of the town and is now a museum which exhibits fine period furniture and porcelain.

Apart from the many beautiful sites and old buildings Tulbagh is well known for its Church Street and the magnificent old restored buildings many of which were destroyed buildings by the 1969 earthquake.

Bainskloof Pass – remains an engineering master piece and a National Monument designed and constructed by Scotsman Andrew Geddes Bain – providing access to the hinterland beyond the mountains, became the official ‘Gateway to the North’, over which countless wagons creaked their way to the diamond and gold fields, it offers magnificent vistas, indigenous and unique flora and fauna, crystal-clear rock pools, camp sites and hiking trails originally built with convict labor.
