Sutherland is a quaint karoo town known best for its star gazing. The South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) is a 15 min drive away, and day and night tours are available. The town also boasts the childhood house of Afrikaans writer N.P van Wyk Louw and a beautiful church built in 1855. Although the region is semi desert, every year winter dusts the landscape in snow and spring brings forth a multitude of daisies. The fresh air and peace and quiet makes for a great getaway from the city. Please note that since Sutherland is a small town, shops are closed between 1-2 pm and are closed on Sundays.
