Bredasdorp, economic capital of the Cape Agulhas Region, was established by Michiel van Breda, leading farmer in the area, in 1838.

This bustling vibrant town with a population of about 22 000, can offer the visitor a variety of business facilities, service providers and leisure activities.

As the centre of the Region’s wheat producing area, Bredasdorp serves largely the local agricultural community.

Bredasdorp is a historic town with a 9-hole golf course and the popular shipwreck museum, located at the foot of the Heuningberg Nature Reserve.  It is also the heart of the southernmost area and the gateway to De Hoop with its Whale Trail, L’Agulhas, Arniston, Napier and Elim.

The region

The southernmost region of Africa is part of the Overberg and stretches from Gansbaai in the west, to the mouth of the Breede River in the east.  It includes the De Hoop Nature and Marine Reserve.  The Ruggens is an undulating landscape, north of Bredasdorp, with the Riviersonderend and Langeberg mountains as background, whereas the southern coastal region beyond the Bredasdorp-Napier mountain range is familiar as the Strandveld.

In addition to farming, fishing has been an important industry since the early days.  Both Waenhuiskrans / Arniston and Struisbaai were originally fishing villages.  Today both towns are popular holiday resorts.  This unique architecture of the remaining fishers’ cottages is typical of this region, and many are proclaimed national and world heritage sites.

Elim, a Moravian missionary is a historical and architectural gem and today making name as the Elim Wine Precinct.
