Cornerstone – Hoekwil’s Latest Attraction

Hoekwil Open Gardens

Saturday 6 – Sunday 7 November

Hoekwil village, 7km inland of Wilderness, has become known over the last 8 years for showcasing country gardening with a twist. With a backdrop of the Outeniqua Mountains, the sea and lakes, these large gardens lend themselves to sweeping expanses of colourful flowerbeds, from formal to natural indigenous. Ponds, dams and unusual water features add interest to the mass planting of roses, aloes and succulents, with pathways leading through forests. Hoekwil is a popular destination for visitors looking for beautiful scenery, interesting eateries, quaint nurseries and a laid-back atmosphere. 

Times: 09:00 –16:00

Entrance: R50 per person for both days. Children free.

Tickets are available on the days at a kiosk outside the Hoekwil Post Office in Kerkstraat. Look out for signage.

Cornerstone – Hoekwil’s Latest Attraction

Ian and Karen Visser, Cornerstone, Duiwerivier Road

An artist’s dream is developing on what was a wattle-infested property at Hoekwil’s Latest Attraction. The vision of an Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden as well as a wedding venue and coffee shop is taking shape with unique features showcased in bold and dramatic ways. A water wheel and life-sized statues create an eclectic fusion of art and nature as you amble down sloping lawns to indigenous forest.
