Nearby Attractions on the Midlands Meander 

A great location in the Midlands should offer country tranquility AND proximity to local attractions.

Curry’s Post is one of the most popular areas in the Midlands for visitors to use as a base due to its proximity to the major nearby attractions in the area but can still offer a genuine country experience.



Popular attractions include the Mandela Capture Site, Hilton College, Michaelhouse, Piggly Wiggly, the Karkloof Canopy Tours and the Drakensberg mountain range.
