Sleepy Barberton - We arrived on a Sunday morning and NOTHING of any tourist value was open. We had to muddle our way around town which was disappointing as the entrance to the town promised great things with the brightly painted rocks. No tourist map available to find the Jock statue (or other landmarks). Did enjoy going up the pass toward Piggs Peak - wonderful views. Think this would be a wonderful spot to visit when open!

Barberton er -OK - Did not really live up to the write up. Pleasant, and fine for picking up provisions for self catering accommodation, but that was about it. A good place to stop off if travelling south from MPUMALANGA to KZN.

Barberton - The town has a lot to offer unfortunately people are grumpy and not very helpful - a coffee shop is advertised at the galary but there was no one on a Saturday morning - the local authorities has a tourist germ but there is serious lack of interest and the town really "deurmekaar" and unkept. The painted stones at the entrance is charming, someone is trying but the efforts are not enough.

Lots of history, geology and beautifully situated - Barberton is well worth visiting. The town is quiet in relation to city life, has very interesting history and around it great geology can been experienced first hand along the R40 - some of the oldest greenstone rock formations (3.5 billion years old). It's relaxing to be there but also educational. Ingrid Booysen, Pretoria

Tranquil Beauty - A nice place to break away from the city, relax, enjoy nature and explore the mining town's history. Friendly people and heart-warming places to visit.
