Experience contrasting seasons in Alexandra
Situated at the junction of two rivers, Alexandra is surrounded by a distinctive 'moonscape' of rocky tors and stark high country. Enjoy the modern facilities of Alexandra, but remember its gold mining past is never far from the surface.
Walk up to the clock on the hill - at 11 meters wide it is one of the largest in the world.
In summer, visit a local fruit orchard - apricots and cherries are the region's specialty.
In winter, go ice skating or try your hand at curling at the local outdoor ice rink.
