Kirkwood lies on the banks of the Sundays River. To the north of Kirkwood are the Rietberg Mountains. The Uyepoort is the passage to the Zuurberg Mountains and the Addo Elephant National Park.
Kirkwood’s subtropical climate has made it the citrus capital of the Eastern Cape. A panoramic view of Kirkwood and the surrounding citrus groves is possible from The Lookout in the Rietberg Mountains.
The Lookout is also well known as a dinosaur fossil site. The first complete dinosaur fossil to be found in South Africa, nicknamed “Kirky”, was discovered near here. Kirky was smaller than 2 meters.
