Barberton

Kruger National Park & Lowveld, Mpumalanga
Click here for Barberton Accommodation

Situated in the De Kaap Valley, Barberton is proud to call the surrounding Makhonjwa Mountains the 'Genesis of Life', as this is where some of the most ancient rocks in the world are found.
This small Mpumalanga town is where geologists from all over the world come to study the origins of life in Barberton's rare green rocks, which only occur in two places in the world, and show evidence of the very first life forms, and how the Earth looked around 3.5 billion years ago. The discovery of these extraordinary rocks have put Barberton on the map as the Mpumalanga town where 'the history of our planet is cast in stone'.

Also found in the Mpumalanga, Makhonjwa Mountains is gold, thought to be some of the oldest, finest gold on the planet, and although Barberton is gaining notoriety for its remarkable rock finds, and is a proposed World Heritage Site, the more recent gold rush is what Barberton is most famous for. 

In the 1880's, thousands of hopefuls looking to strike it rich descended on Barber's Reef, an area in the Barberton Valley so laden with gold that it sparkled! It was around this frantic gold rush that the country's first stock exchange was opened in Barberton, which was flourishing with hotels, saloons and music halls springing up, along with very colourful characters who took advantage of Barberton being at its height, with speculators, miners and stockbrokers filling the small Mpumalanga town, and filling their pockets with huge profits.
It was in these very Barberton streets that the flamboyant barmaid and prostitute called Cockney Liz plied her trade at the Barberton Red Light Canteen, where she was a sensation, and soon earned enough money to buy the bar and rename it the Cockney Liz Billiard Saloon. Cockney Liz was not only a huge attraction in Barberton, but also a shrewd business woman who went on to build the Barberton Royal Albert Hall. Cockney Liz is also attributed with naming the Barberton Daisy, now a fairly common little flower, who once caught the attention of Barberton's most notorious courtesan.

Another famous Barberton resident was Percy Fitspatrick, author of Jock of the Bushveld, who was editor of the Gold Fields News, and transport rider during the days of the Barberton gold rush. In memoriam, a magnificent statue of Fitspatirick's faithful dog Jock can be seen in front of the Barberton Town Hall

Testimony to Barberton's boom town, gold rush days still speaks for itself on Barberton’s Heritage Walk, where architectural relics of the past are on display in the form of beautifully preserved homes. One of Barberton's oldest buildings is now the Belhaven Museum, restored and furnished to its original appearance in 1904, as an elegant Edwardian home belonging to an upper, middle class family. Another perfectly preserved Barberton house is the iron and wood Stopforth House, built in 1886 by baker and general dealer James Stopforth, whose descendants continued to occupy and maintain the Stopforth family home until 1983.

When looking for your own lodgings in Barberton, you will find unique, homely Barberton Self Catering accommodation tucked away amongst the trees with beautiful surrounding gardens. Nearby, Barberton restaurants offer visitors a huge variety of eateries such as Digger's Retreat, The Gold Mine, African Pioneer Mining, Old Rock Cafe, Umjindi Gallery and many more.

For the outdoor adventurer, Barberton offers incredible activities through mountain forests and streams, over rocky terrain and deep bushveld, such as 4x4 routes, cycle trails, hiking the Fortuna Mine Tunnel route or walking the Barberton Geotrail, which allows visitors to experience first hand the secrets of the Makhonjwa Mountain rocks. Paraglide off Lone Tree Hill, horse ride, or visit the half dozen wildlife reserves within a 12km radius of Barberton, making Barberton a wildlife utopia waiting to be explored.


For the less adventurous, golf lovers can swing their clubs at the Barberton Golf Club, one of the oldest clubs in the country, This uphill course advises golfers to stay out of the buffalo grass which represents the rough.
Then, for a gentler activity, indulge yourself with an English Tea at the Victorian Tea Garden in the historic Market Square.

Barberton is without a doubt a fantastic tourist destination, offering visitors a Mpumalanga town with a colourful and vibrant history, and surrounded by stunning scenery with ample opportunities for adventure, but most of all, Barberton is all about its sense of community, and the welcome it extends to those who come to explore this unusual Mpumalanga town.
