Visit Tulbagh

Visit Tulbagh

The charming historical town of Tulbagh (GPS CO-ordinates S 33.28 33 and E18 41 67) is less than 100km from Cape Town and about the same from Cape Town International Airport.

Tulbagh forms part of the Witzenberg Municipal area, and is near Wolseley, Prince Alfred's Hamlet, Gouda and Ceres, It is in the Winelands of Boland in the Western Cape Province, South Africa and is a great base from which to explore the entire Boland Winelands area.

There are lots of things to do and see, places to eat, scenic hiking trails, sport, horse riding, camping, self catering or catered accommodation in the Tulbagh area.

Tulbagh is situated on the northern end of the beautiful and fertile Tulbagh Valley. The valley is almost completely surrounded by majestic mountain ranges - the Obiqua Mountains to the west, the towering Winterhoek on the northern end and the Witzenberg on the eastern side of the valley. The Great Winterhoek Mountains tower 2077 metres above sea level and are picturesquely snow capped in winter.

 Proteas grow wild, as do herbs such as Buchu. The spring brings a multitude of wild flowers to full bloom and together with the blossoming fruit trees, the Tulbagh valley puts on a spectacular show. The productive Tulbagh Valley produces some of the country's best red and white wines, olive oil, peaches, grain, pears and seventy percent of the country's plums!

Tulbagh is a wonderful tourist and country holiday destination and tourism is actively promoted by the warm and friendly people of the district. The valley is fast becoming a wedding and conference location with all the facilities available to make for a memorable occasion. Towns such as Wellington, Malmesbury, Paarl, Franschhoek, Riebeeck Kasteel, Malmesbury, Piketberg, Porterville, Stellenbosch, Worcester and Rawsonville are within three quarters of an hour's drive from the valley.


Tulbagh Valley was first discovered in 1658 by Pieter Potter, surveyor general to Jan van Riebeeck, the first governor of the Cape, who arrived 6 years earlier.  It was settled in 1699 by 14 farmers. The Town, however, only developed from 1743 when the NG Church was built.  Since a major earthquake (6.4 on the Richter scale) on 29 September 1969, Tulbagh has become well known as the result of the restoration of every building in present Church Street to its original form.  These 32 buildings were all declared Provincial Monuments and constitute the largest concentration of Provincial Monuments in one street in South Africa.

 Church Street does not appear on Google maps but it is the unmarked street that runs parallel and to the left of van der Stel Street
