Activities in Carnarvon

Carnarvon has much heritage and this can be experienced at the Carnarvon Museum. The Carnarvon Museum, built in 1907, originally served as a community hall for the Dutch Reformed Church. The corbelled house outside the museum is an excellent example of the many corbelled houses that can be found on farms in the district of Carnarvon.

Koeëlkop, the prominent hill that overlooks Carnarvon, got it’s name because of the many bullets (Afrikaans:” koeël”) that were found lying around on top of the hill, left there by the English soldiers during the Anglo-Boer war. One can assume that Koeëlkop would have been an important lookout point for the guards during the war, but today it serves as a site for the water reservoir that supplies water to Carnarvon. Lately the remnants of an old English fort was rebuilt on top of Koeëlkop.

The Skietfontein hiking trail offers hikers a typical Karoo veld experience with a variety of interesting shrubs (Karoo bossies) and beautiful views of the Karoo hills and windmills as well as water fowl in the pools of water in the river. At Skietfontein remnants of the ancient stone houses of early inhabitants can still be found, as well as a few typical Karoo houses and very friendly people.

Other interesting walks include the Historic Houses Trail where you can visit many of the original houses of the settlement at De Bult, as well as many of the Victorian houses and stylish mansions, that were built before and just after nineteen hundred.Nature reserves, San Rock paintings & engravings are just a few more of the interesting things to see and do in and around Carnarvon.
