Notices and visitor tips

  • Millwood Museum & Mother Holly:
    Please note that the Millwood Museum and Mother Holly tea room is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Groups that wish to visit Mother Holly must please contact and arrange with Marian and Garth Van Reenen on tel: 044 3890092; cell: 071 683 0929 or via email: tottiesfarmkitchen@gmail.com
  • The Farleigh Mountain Bike Routes:
    The Farleigh Mountain Bike Routes will be temporarily closed for the next few weeks (weekends included). The routes are closed due to the current harvest of timber in areas traversing the routes and due to the hazardous nature of the work it will not be safe for mountain bikers. The alternative route that was used in the past is also affected, thus leaving us with no other alternative but the temporary closure. We apologise for the inconvenience caused..
  • Remember to bring along a bathing suit, angling equipment, hat, sun block, walking shoes, binoculars, bird and mammal reference books. Hikers must always carry sufficient water.
  • For summer (September – March), cool comfortable clothing is recommended along with sunhats and sun protection cream.
    For winter and autumn (April – August), warm clothing is recommended for the night times.
  • As outdoor lighting in camps is limited, a torch/headlamp is required when walking outside at night.
