Durbanville interests

Durbanville is a residential village in the Western Cape province of South Africa, and part of the greater City of Cape Town metropolitan area. Situated on the northern outskirts of the metropolis, it is surrounded by farms producing wine and wheat.

Founded in the early 19th century around a fresh water spring and primarily used as a watering station for travellers between Cape Town and the interior, it grew rapidly after the turn of the 19th century.

Today, Durbanville is one of the Western Cape’s key areas with a booming wine industry, and numerous mountain biking and hiking trails, many of which meander through the hills and the vineyards. Durbanville also boasts a small airfield from which one can enjoy aerial tours of the West Coast and Peninsula.

Founded in 1967, Durbanville Golf Club has established a firm reputation for camaraderie and sportsmanship, earning it the fond accolade The Jewel of the North.

Durbanville is home to very many talented artists. Their works of art are placed in interesting locations, ranging from galleries, coffee shops and on wine farms. Hunting them down is all the fun.
