From Cape Town on the N1 to Avalon Springs

Take N1 to Paarl, through the Huguenot Tunnel (or over Du Toit's Kloof Pass) and on to Worcester where you will pass a Shell Ultra City on your left hand side and you will get to a set of traffic lights on the N1. Proceed straight across these traffic lights to a second set at which you turn right into Worcester. Follow this road, over a railway bridge, all the way down to High Street, where you must turn left into High Str. Carry on for about 1km and watch for signs directing you to the right (R60) towards Robertson, Ashton and Montagu.

Stay on the R60 all the way, and once through Ashton it becomes the R62 which takes you through the Cogman's Kloof to Montagu. > As you enter Montagu, you are now in Long Street, which you carry on with, to almost the end of town. Turn left into the very last road, being Cross Street. >> At the next stop, turn right into Bath Street, which you follow about 3km out of town. On your left you will see (illuminated) signs for Avalon & Montagu Springs. Turn left here into Uitvlucht Street and immediately swing right and follow this street all the way down to our car park.

From Cape Town along the N2 to Avalon Springs

Follow the N2 over Sir Lowry's Pass, through Caledon and Riviersonderend. Roughly 24km after Riviersonderend watch for the Stormsvlei turn-off on your left. Turn here and follow the signs to Bonnievale. As you approach Bonnievale you will cross the mighty Breede River. At the T-junction, turn left into the main street, then turn right towards Ashton and Montagu at the next stop.

Go round the church and follow the same road out of town. On your right is the Bonnievale Golf Course (watch out for the railway crossing). Next you will come to a T-junction where you must turn left onto the R60 to Ashton. At the next T-junction, turn right to Montagu (R62) and follow the instructions as above from >.

From Mossel Bay along the Garden Route

As you pass Swellendam on your right-hand side, look out for the turn-off to Ashton, where you must turn right off the N2 and onto the R60. Roughly 70km later you will reach a T-junction. Turn right onto the R62 (with Ashton to your left) towards Montagu and when you enter the town follow the directions as above from >.

From up country on the N1 to Avalon Springs

Assuming you are coming down the N1 through Touwsriver, roughly 22km out of the town (on the Cape Town side) you'll see a sign to your left indicating Montagu via the Koo Valley (R318). Turn left here and follow this route for approx. 70km. Whilst breathtakingly beautiful in parts, motorists are cautioned to drive slowly along this route as there are 2 fairly hair-raising passes with some VERY tight hairpin bends! (Expect snow in winter)

As you approach the outskirts of Montagu you will see some (illuminated) signs on your right for Avalon and Montagu Springs. Turn right into Uitvlucht Street and keep right. Follow Uitvlucht Street all the way down to our car park. (4x4 enthusiasts may also consider the gravel road alternative from Touwsriver via Ouberg Pass and Langkloof. See map for more details.)

From Beaufort West to Avalon Springs:

6km outside Beaufort West on the Cape Town side, turn left onto the N12. This takes you via Klaarstroom, Meiringspoort (Spectacular!) to De Rust and on to Oudtshoorn (The Ostrich Capitol of the World). >>> Find your way onto the R62 and head through Calitzdorp (after which there is spectacular Huisrivier Pass), Ladismith (stay on the R62 -- it turns left!), Barrydale, and onto Montagu.

As you come into the town, the very first road on your right is Cross Street. Turn right here and follow the instructions from >> above. (For the more adventurous, you could consider coming down the N1 as far as Prince Albert Road and turning left onto the R328, make your way via Prince Albert over the Swartberg Pass to Oudtshoorn, from where you follow directions above from >>>. This route is not recommended at night, in bad weather or if you are towing!!!)
