The Mooi River, meaning 'Beautiful River' flows through a very fertile valley. Willow trees droop along the riverbanks and the hillsides are richly grassed. Set in a panorama of natural beauty the Mooi River area offers gracious splendour to rural simplicity.

In 1921 a town was established on the banks of the river and today it is a very busy agricultural centre.

The altitude of the town some 1389 metres above sea level, gives the area a crisp climate in contrast to the heat and humidity of the coast 160 km to the south-east.
