Great Brak River nestles in a perfect Garden Route setting at the confluence of the Great Brak River and the Indian Ocean. Situated midway between George (30 km) and Mossel Bay (27 km), the area offers beautiful, unspoilt beaches and a lagoon for safe swimming. It is surrounded by the scenic beauty of the majestic Outeniqua Mountains and the azure blue sea, rolling green hills and pastures, rich agriculture and culture.

River bush and fynbos, aloe and dolphins, whales, suikerbekkie and man live side by side in a place one can only describe as paradise. The presence of Southern Right and other whales from May until November is one of the town’s main attractions for whale watchers. The river that divides the village is rich in marine life, while its wooded banks offer excellent opportunities for bird watching.

It’s a tourist’s paradise, alive with cultural activities, musical events and art in all its forms, offering great accommodation with plenty of sporting and leisure activities. Follow the circular route through the village and experience the history and culture of years gone by. There are an art route, several cycling and hiking routes, the fragrance route (lavender planted in local gardens) and a historic route.

Situated close to Knysna, Oudtshoorn, George and Mossel Bay, Great Brak River is ideal for visits to wine routes & game farms.
