Alexandria, Alexandria

Although Alexandria is a town along the R72 within the Sunshine Coast region, it is not actually on the coast. But it is not far from the coast. It has the Woody Cape section at the seaboard end of Addo Elephant Park on its doorstep; and the two seaside villages of Cannon Rocks and Boknes lie 19kms further east. Alexandria owes its existence to the founding of a Dutch Reformed parish to serve the needs of its farming community in 1856. At that stage it was known as Olifantshoek. In 1873 it was renamed Alexandria in honour of Rev Alexander Smith who had held regular church services for the Olifantshoek community after his arrival from Scotland in...

Boknesstrand, Boknesstrand

To someone who is familiar with Afrikaans, the word ‘Boknes’ evokes the possibility that this little village is a place where little buck have made a nest, a den or even a colony. Not so. The word derives from the word ‘Bocana’ or ‘Bokana’ meaning ‘father’s river’ in the language of the Khoikhoi and San Bushmen who were the original inhabitants of the Sunshine Coast. Evidence of their residence can be seen from middens scattered along the shoreline at various places. The village of Boknes lies at the mouth of the Boknes River in an area that was originally known as...

Cannon Rocks, Cannon Rocks

Cannon Rocks is the ultimate getaway for those who want sea, sun, sand and very little else except peace and quiet. The village of 3,12 square kilometres virtually borders on the Woody Cape section at the eastern extremity of the Addo Elephant Park. It is also the gateway to 'Clover Country', the verdant green pastures and tranquil rolling hills of the Eastern Cape dairy farms where cattle gently graze and Homo sapiens is seldom seen. In the village itself, only 214 members of that species were found at the time of the 2011 census. Of those some 52% spoke English, 44% Afrikaans and just over 1% spoke Xhosa. These were the permanent residents. At other times of the year,...

Cradock

Permanent water diverted from the Orange River has given stability that many other rural areas lack in that the periodic devastating droughts are made less severe by the Lucerne and maize that is grown and that the farmers are able to produce winter grazing for their animals. The water has also enabled them to branch out into other farming enterprises such as dairy, ostrich and vegetable farming. Our prosperity is also due to the far sightedness of the Cradock residents and the various sporting councils in promoting sport on a major scale. Cradock plays host to the great Hansa Powerade Fish River Canoe Marathon with over 1 000 paddlers every year, as well as prestige...
