George Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About George?
George began as a centre for exploiting the timber of the rich forests behind the coastline. The Dutch East India Company first set up a trading post there only for the British to take it over a few years later. Timber continued to be the main industry for the city until overexploitation meant the industry declined. Today, the city thrives on tourism, being a key hub on one of South Africa’s premier tourist attractions, the Garden Route which stretches along the coast.

How do I get to George?
George has its own airport with daily flights to and from Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Travellers are fortunate because low cost operators, 1Time and Kulula operate flights to George from Johannesburg. International travellers can fly into any of these three airports and then connect cheaply to George. The airport is slightly to the east of the city but with bus transport into George. Taxis and hire cars are available as alternative ways of getting to the city.
What Should I do in my Time in George?
With a car you can drive part or all of the spectacular Garden Route along the coast or take the Montague Pass route inland for fine views down over the city and the coast. The pass is now classed as a national monument. The city itself is quite attractive with some interesting places to visit. Begin with the fascinating George Museum which details the history of the city. Then walk around the old Dutch church called the Moerder Kerk whose interior is very beautiful.

Latest Update from George:

06/06/12 - Many people have run distance events in a variety of outfits but on the 18th August, George hosts the second annual Tramonto Wedding Run. Over a variety of distances, brides and grooms run, competing for a cash prize which they can put towards the cost of a wedding. The Bridal Dash is the headline event when brides or brides-to-be all sprint, in their wedding dresses, to be first to cross the line.
