The simplest description of Darling is that it’s a flower town but this would be an injustice to this dynamic little West Coast town that offers perpetual, innovative and most happening events throughout the year. Events range from an uber music festival to intimate plays held in resident’s lounges.
Once a sleepy dairy town, Darling blossomed when playwright, comedian, author and political terror Pieter Dirk-Uys came to town. He purchased the old station and began operating a theatre-dinner venue which has been drawing in crowds now for over 20 years.
Darling has its own wine route and is a popular stop during the wildflower season. The town also has the largest orchid nursery in the country.
Although only an hour’s drive from Cape Town, Darling is a trip through beautiful countryside and a welcome respite from city life.
