The town of Vereeniging in the Gauteng Province attracts many visitors, due to its locality alongside the willow tree-lined Vaal River, and the Barrage and Vaal dams where resorts and water sport facilities are prevalent.
Vereeniging lies within the Golden Arc, an area stretching from Johannesburg, the City of Gold, to Welkom, where some of the richest gold veins are still being mined. The town was once at the centre of the railways linking the Cape, Orange Free State and Transvaal provinces.
