Activities in Sutherland

Sutherland is well known as an extremely cold place and for having the largest telescope in the Southern Hemisphere.  It is a telescope so powerful that one could see a candle flame on the moon.

Another interesting fact about Sutherland is that the growing of tulips in South Africa was pioneered by Rev M B Brink here. In 1925 he arrived in Sutherland during a snowstorm. Having studied for several years in Holland, he immediately realised the climate in Sutherland was similar to Holland, therefore ideal for growing tulips!  Today tulips are mainly cultivated in Sutherland to produce bulbs for the market.

When visiting Sutherland you do not have any choice but to walk the amazing veldplant route of either 3 or 12 km just outside town. On route all the plants are numbered and presented in an A5-booklet with botanical names and short description of each plant together with a digital photo.  The most ideal time where the most flowers are in bloom, is August to October.

There is an 18 hole golf course, tennis courts and yoke pin coarse provide the sport activities.  Please see our activities directory for more information on things to do in Sutherland.
