What a memorable evening! The Old Goal re-opened last Thursday as a 5 star tourist attraction after three long months of restoration. It is located right in the centre of town, next to the Information bureau. To co-celebrate this great event, Wilna Eloff exhibited some of her wonderful water colour paintings of namaqualand succulents, many endemic to this region. And of course, being part of the Olifant’s River Wine Route, we may even have over-indulged a bit! The local cuisine did not let us down either. Speaking of which – fresh, home baked bread will be available on a daily basis, not to mention Monica’s Peacock brand cappuccino. And if your body resists the idea of caffeine , try her Cappuccino Red.
Vanrhynsdorp is known for its cultivation of high quality Rooibos tea.
