WELLINGTON was founded in 1840 and was named after the Duke of Wellington. The Wellington region is renowned for its beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads and gardens. The historic Bain’s Kloof Pass, with its unsurpassed vistas, indigenous flora and fauna and crystal-clear rock pools is the perfect spot for hikers and mountain-bikers, while closer to town guided wine-walks and horse-trails through farmland and fynbos can be enjoyed. The town is surrounded by fruit orchards, wine estates and olive groves. Wellington boasts true country hospitality, some of the most idyllic wedding venues in the Cape Winelands, an award-winning wine route, beautiful wine estates and accommodation to suit a variety of requirements and budgets. We look forward to welcoming you to Wellington!
