About the area

Aurora is a charming little village set against the western flank of the Piketberg mountains, 50km from Velddrif.

It was here that the French astronomer-geodesist, Abbé Nicolas de le Caille set up an observatory where his findings concluded that the world was pear-shaped, a result that had the astronomical world in a bit of a tailspin for decades whilst they tried to prove otherwise.

But visitors now come here for the simplicity, the clear and incredible night skies, and the flowers during the season.

Best time to visit

With a quaint town square and Sandveld houses, Aurora is a must in flower season (August-September) when the fields are turned into a paradise of pink, yellow and orange flowers.
