The Andrew Murray Centre was built in the late 1890's. It is within walking distance from shops and restaurants. It provides an excellent base from which to explore the rest of the Boland.
Wellington lies on the banks of the River Kromme at the foot of the Groenberg Mountain in a glorious valley just 45 minutes’ drive from Cape Town.
To the east are the majestic Hawequa Mountains and together these quiet monoliths watch over a valley that is quite literally home of the vines - almost 90% of the country’s vines are grown in vine-cutting nurseries (stokkieskwekerye) before they are transported elsewhere for planting.
Wellington once served as the last outpost of civilisation in the Cape before entering unfamiliar territory and was known as Limiet Vallei (frontier valley) and Val du Charron or Wagenmakersvallei (valley of the wagon maker) as it was here that wagons could receive attention before the start of a long and difficult journey.
