Big corner plot for sale in Aurora. 1487m2.
Aurora, meaning 'daybreak' is set against the slopes of an imposing mountain in the middle of the Sandveld. In summer the area can look dry and colourless in contrast to the lush green mountain, but after the first rains the area is transformed into a paradise of flowers.
An almost forgotten village close to the very famous Verloren Vlei (RAMSAR protected) for the nature lover to explore, Aurora offers fantastic birdwatching, hiking, fauna & flora, San rock art, cycling, 4x4 routes and is only 20 minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean at Dwarskersbos.
This area of the Western Cape is well known for its spring flowers and excellent bird life.
French Astronomer, Abbe De la Caille, erected the McClear Beacon on the outskirts of Aurora in 1751. This beacon is the northernmost survey beacon on which the arc of meridian is measured along with two others, at Kasteelberg and the corner of Strand and Adderley Streets in Cape Town respectively, was used to measure the southern arc of the meridian.
Aurora is part of the wheat, fruit and sheepfarming region that lies between the coast and the N7 highway to Namibia.It is a great stepping off place for the coastal region and also for the spring flowering of the area.
The West Coast and Klein Karoo are semi-arid regions and are typified by many species of succulents and drought-resistant shrubs and acacia trees.
