George is situated halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth on the Garden Route. The town has a sophisticated infrastructure, yet retains its small town atmosphere. George is also a major accommodation centre.
George has numerous world-class golf courses, some designed by famous golfers. The most well-known is Fancourt Golf Estate, which hosted the Presidents Cup in 2003 and is often the host to high-profile golf tournaments.
The historic Montagu Pass between George and Oudtshoorn is open to traffic and is a good gravel road, some 10 km in length. With many serpentine curves, this pass gradually winds its way through the fynbos-covered Cradock’s Kloof until it reaches the summit.
The Garden Route Botanical Garden is situated the top of Caledon Street. The Garden Route boasts the largest continuous natural forest area in South Africa, covering some 650 km².
The Outeniqua Transport Museum houses a large collection of steam locomotives and carriages.
At the George Cheese Festival Cheese Makers, Wine Cellars & Chocolatiers present their cheese, wine & chocolate pairings to the public over a three-day period.
