The remnants of the South African built Prisoner of War Camp can still be seen as well as other fortifications relating to the tussle between the German Schutztruppe and South African Forces in 1914. The Commonwealth Graveyard is also a silent relic of that era. In the vicinity very rare fossils from the late Ediacaran period have been found as well as Bushman Paintings, which can be viewed on a guided tour. The area west of Aus is noted for its herd of feral horses living in the desert.
Their origin is uncertain but today there is a population of between 150 and 200 individuals which have adapted to the harsh environment and can be viewed at the Garub Pan.
