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
