Town of Namaqualand
Middle of Nowhere - Centre of the Universe
Off season Sutherland is quiet and a long way from anywhere. A charming Karoo town with an attractive church, Boer War cemetery and some genuinely good restaurants. Sleepy is the word.Just up the hill is the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) an astronomical facility so famous that it attracts scientists and visitors from all over the World to gaze into the vast vault of Space. Awesome is the word.
