Geography and History

Victoria West is situated on the N12, halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg making it the ideal stopover point for holiday makers or businessmen on a long journey.

Victoria West lies nestled between two mountains and a rivert.  It is a small town with an unofficial population of little over 11 000 people. The town was founded in 1855 and since it has grown into a thriving Karoo town. Over the last few years Victoria West has proven that the so called "platteland" still has a lot to offer. Several businesses have opened in recent years and the town hosted the Agri Expo Show of the year in February 2004.

The town is relatively small, and is steeped in tradition, a long history and an atmosphere of pride and friendliness.  Victoria West was founded in 1843 when the Dutch Reformed Church bought a part of the farm Zeekoegat from Mr J.H. Claassens. The town was then named after Queen Victoria of England. Later, when a similarly named district was formed in the Eastern Cape, "West" was added to the back of the name in order to distinguish it from it's eastern counterpart. The town in the Eastern Cape was then called Victoria East
