Welcome to Sutherland Info

 

A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants and Businesses in Sutherland, South Africa

 

Famous for its snow in winter and perfect star gazing opportunities Sutherland is a great breakaway from hectic city life.  Located in the Northern Cape the town was established in 1855 around the Dutch Reformed Church.

 

Today Sutherland is mainly a sheep farming area with its focus on tourism as it provides visitors with clear night sky’s ideal for feeling “closer” to the universe via its magnificent Observatory – the largest telescope in the Southern Hemisphere.  Visitors flock here from all over just for this even in winter!

 

Sutherland is an ideal area for growing tulips, as was discovered by Rev MB Brink in 1925.  Today tulips are mainly cultivated in Sutherland to produce bulbs for the market.  Walking and hiking is popular in this area especially the veldplant route of either 3 or 12 km, located just outside of Sutherland.  On the 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 ideal time to see the flowers in bloom is August to October.

 

There is an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts and yoke pin coarse providing other sporting activities.
