|Nestled between two mountains and a river, on route from Johannesburg to Cape Town (via Kimberley),lies Victoria West, a small town with an unofficial population of little over 11 000 people. The town was founded in 1855 and since it has grown into a thriving Karoo town. Over the last few years Victoria West has proven that the so called "platteland" still has a lot to offer. Several businesses have opened in recent years and the town hosted the Agri Expo Show of the year in February 2004.|
|Victoria West is situated on the N12, halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg making it the ideal stopover point for holiday makers or businessmen on a long journey.|
|Places of interest in Victoria West include the following :
1. A unique collection of Victorian Houses should you enter from Loxton
2. A museum second to none and one of only three regional museums in the Northern Cape.
3. Mannetjies Roux's private collection of Rugby Memorabelia and photos.
4. Then of course there is the Apollo theatre which is the last remaining Art Deco cinema in the whole of South Africa
5. The "Karooland Staproete", a mountain hiking trail on the outskirts of the town, which lets you experience the magic of the Karoo first hand. And lots, lots more....
