Area Information:

The commercial centre of a rather prosperous farming community, the attractive town of Queenstown, known for its roses, climate and amicable townsfolk, lies on the Komani River close enough to the Wild Coast and Karoo Heartland to make it a favoured stopover.

Queenstown itself lies at the foot of the Hangklip Mountain, whilst other towns in the district include Dordrecht, Molteno and Sterkstroom. The area not only provides incredible scenery, but it is a hive of activity for the outdoor enthusiast: there are trails, rivers, rocks, mountains, hiking, climbing, fishing, mountain biking, canoeing and anything really, as long as it involves relishing all that is al fresco.

The Lawrence de Lange Nature Reserve, set on the slopes of the Madeira Mountain just outside Queenstown, has a number of trails worth exploring, spectacular examples of flowering plants, and an array of different antelope that include blesbok, springbok and zebra. The reserve also has incredible views from the mountain summit. The Bongola Dam that supplies the town with its water is set in the hills surrounding Queenstown and is a great day out for picnics and water sports.

Queenstown was originally intended as a military outpost and as such is designed in a central hexagon meant to serve as a protective lager for its town's people, who fortunately never had to use it for this purpose.

Property Facilities:

* Safe & Secure parking.
* Swimming Pool.

Attractions:

Within the Queenstown area there are two main art galleries namely the JC Marshall Art Gallery and the Ruth Lock Shell Art Gallery.

The JC Marshall Art Gallery exhibits numerous works by mainly local artists. The Ruth Lock Shell Art Gallery exhibits intricate scenes and images of nature that Miss Lock created from seashells without the use of paint or artificial colouring. Miss Lock also built the exhibition hall herself over many years.

Frontier Museum:
Phone (045)8395860 Hours Mon-Fri 7.45am-4.30pm

The museum was built as a school but now houses, among many other interesting exhibits, a fully rebuilt and furnished frontier cottage. The history of the area is exceptionally well documented and illustrated in the most interesting manner.

Lawrence De Lange Game Reserve:
Phone 0835568439 Hours 8.00am-5.00pm

The reserve is situated on the slopes of the Madeira Mountain, which overlooks the town from the west and provides panoramic views of Queenstown and its surrounds. The species of game roaming the reserve includes to name a few, Eland, Gemsbok, Kudu, Blesbok, Springbok, Ostrich, Zebra, Indian Water Buffalo, Wildebeest, Rhinoceros and Giraffe. The reserve is also home to the indigenous Aloe Ferox, which is a magnificent sight in winter when it is fully clad in scarlet.

Longhill Nature Reserve:
On the northern boundary of Queenstown, along a stretch of Longhill Mountain, lies the Longhill Nature Reserve. Several species of antelope and other wild animals can be seen in the reserve. Entry to this area can be obtained through a gate opposite the Lawrence de Lange entrance and the drive includes delightful picnic spots offering pleasant views of the town.

Bonkolo Dam:
Which is also home to Settlers Motocross Club & Queenstown Powerboat & Yacht club. The Bonkolo Dam, about 5 km from town on the Dordrecht road, is one of the townâ??s main sources of water. The wall was built in 1905 and was for years the largest concrete dam wall in South Africa. The name, Bonkolo, is believed to originate from the Xhosa word 'mbongolo' meaning donkey, as these animals were extensively used in the construction of the dam.
