Appreciate the view over the natural fresh-water Palinggat Spring (the fresh water spring originates right there!) where the tame eels are being fed each day at 11:00 – you can even participate in the feeding process if you want! – or walk through the museum and gather information and brochures about what to do where in Stilbaai, Jongensfontein and the area.
The Stilbaai area has an interesting Stone Age heritage and more discoveries are made at the nearby Blombos Cave. This cave is closed to the public, but make sure to visit the archaeological exhibition in the Info Centre where you can view the history.
The little Platbosch School Museum will take many a visitor back to their own school days and the history of schools in the area can be viewed here.
There is also a little shop that sells interesting things including handmade goods and souvenirs. Walk around to view the ‘funeral wagon’ that was used between 1880 and 1920 in the Riversdale / Albertinia district.
The Info Centre and Tourism Bureau is a must stop for Stilbaai visitors AND local residents.
