The N G Church – The corner stone of this beautiful Neo Gothic style N G Church, which is one of the few remaining early dressed Tafelberg sandstone churches in the country, was laid in 1906 and was finally opened in 1907.
The Ruins at Groenrivier These ruins are the remains of the homesteads and outbuildings of the early pioneers and farmers who settled in this area and include the remains of an elaborate carriage house.
The Ruins at ‘Ou plaas’, a typical example of an old farm settlement, is about 13km north west of Nieuwoudtville, on the Grasberg road. Eight farms came together here. The shop, schools and Ko-op were on the farm named Grasberg
The Glacial Pavement This attraction is located approximately 7km south of Nieuwoudtville on the road towards Botterkloof Pass, Pakhuis Pass and Clanwilliam.
Here you can witness traces formed by glaciers 300 million years ago when South Africa was part of Gondwanaland and covered under thick sheets of ice.
These glacial pavements tend to impede water infiltration and damp patches result. These patches are favourite habitats for some of the lovely local geophytic plants.
