Outeniqua Power Van
The outenique power van is a fun way of exploring the railway line between George and Oudtshoorn. The building of the railway line began in December 1908 from the George side and in 1911 from the Oudtshoorn side. The track was blasted out of the rock, and seven tunnels were excavated. At one stage some 2 500 workers were employed. During April 1913 this most scenic railway line was completed. Sir David de Villiers Graaff performed the official opening on 6 August 1913. The line was built at the enormous cost of £465 000.
I was lucky they had an art exhibition at the Masonic hall, so I could go inside and see what it looked like. the are exhibition was of local artist and extremely high quality stuff was on sale there.
Garden Route Botanical Garden
The Cape Floral Kingdom is one of the richest, smallest and most threatened floral kingdoms on Earth.
The Garden Route Botanical Garden therefore, has a vital role to play nationally and globally in the conservation and study of what is arguably proving to be a rich diversity of plant life in this area. In addition the garden's position at the heart of the Garden Route, an area of the country named after its fantastic flora and famous worldwide for the beauty of its natural environment, makes it ideally suited to this vital role
