Situated at the foot of Piketberg with views of St Helena Bay and the famous Table Mountain, Aurora is the perfect place to come to for open spaces and blue blue skies.

The village is a good base for day drives to Verlorenvlei and the Rocherpan Marine and Nature Reserve. Other attractions include hiking trails, mountain-biking, stunning seasonal wild flowers, San rock art and loads of historical sites.
