Excellent venison pie at Molly's Tea Garden, which is part of the small Millwood museum. With your own pot of coffee and attentive service, it makes a worthwhile stop. Particularly after a short, demanding walk along the circle route in the forest at Bibby's Hoek. A fair amount of mud under the ancient canopy, with lichen, creating intriguing spots of... More

We could not tour the mines for some reason. Long Drive up for nothing. Took a detour on our way down and drove some forest roads that made it worthwhile.

If you follow the Rheenendal Road you will see signs that indicate mining activity within National Park. A small fee has to be paid at the boom unless you have a National Parks Wild Card (can be purchased online and saves you entrance fees at all National Parks country wide in South Africa) Follow the dirt road past the Dalene...

Splendidly surprised by the quality of the food, made from quality ingredients from scratch. May take a bit of time but well worth it.

We got here on a sunday afternoon. The tearoom was open, but we didn't have something. The small museum was open, but a lot was under renovation. The tearoom owner had a chat with us and told us a lot about the history, which was very nice. We didn'twalk to the mine, as we were on the lazy side. Don't... More

After a dusty, hot trek to the Millwood mine, we sat down at the quaint tearoom to quench our thirst. Looking at the menu board, we decided to take chance on the bobotie pie and chips. Not expecting much, we were bowled over by the quality of food; the presentation was top notch, the food was delicious and freshly-made. What... More

The travel to get there was further that expected. The kids however had a lot of fun exploring the dark tunnels with only a cellphone torch which kept on switching off.

We decided for something a bit different to take the trip into the national park and go visit the Millwood mine. The first thing is that the park is mostly all dirt track roads. They weren't the worst dirt tracks we had driven on during our SA trip but it was a long drive in to were the mine is.... More

Beautifully presented, very good food in a interesting little museum. Go for a walk into bendingo mines to see fools gold deposit, very cool. Lovely historical little place. Very nice different outing. Off the beaten track.

We didn't do any walks so can't comment on that as we were en route to our next destination. The tea room was closed and I'd been looking forward to sampling the delights that had been reported on here. We did book the mine tour which was quite fascinating, and the staff were extremely attentive to my 10 year old.... More
