Darling Area

The Darling area historically is a dairy area and only the last 10 – 15 years, grape growing has come to the fore. Renowned for its wild flowers, it is one of the Western Cape’s most diverse areas. The Darling Wildflower Society was founded in 1915 with an annual show in September.

The area was used during the 18 hundreds by the government of the day to fatten their cattle, as the area had large plains of natural grass. The traditional produce was game, salt and butter.

These days an abundance of businesses thrive in Darling. Wine, dairy, baskets, olives, sand and water are some of the industries which, along with tourism, makes Darling tick along.
