Property in Aliwal North situated in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa

Property in South Africa > Property in Eastern Cape > Eastern Region > Property in Aliwal North

Buy property in the historical town of Aliwal North. The town is situated on the border between the Free State and Easten Cape provinces of South Africa. Sir Harry Smith (Governor of the Cape) named it Aliwal North to commemorate the famous battle in which he defeated the Sikhs of India in 1846. Aliwal North lies on a strategic ford on the Orange River which was used by the Bushmen and the Voortrekkers.

Aliwal North developed simultaneously as a health resort and transport centre with the railway from East London reaching the town in 1885. This prompted the rapid development of Aliwal North as a commercial centre for the north-eastern region of the British colony. Later the town suffered a severe setback when the railway extended to the Free State and by-passed Aliwal North.

Today Aliwal North is the centre of a prosperous farming community whose main products are wool, maize, wheat, beef and dairy. The town's principle assets are two popular hot mineral springs, which have extremely high concentrates of minerals and gases. The concentrate of gas is so high that the first restaurant built here was able to maintain its cooking fire from gas funnelled from the springs.
