Fairview Picnic Site

This little gem of a picnic site, located close to town, is part of Barberton Mines and offers a great braai experience for all.  In the past it was only used by the mines but we have now opened it up for all nature lovers.

Adults (16+) : R35
Pensioners (65+) : Free

Group discount & concessions on request

It has different sized areas for larger or smaller groups, is safe and secure and is maintained by our team. All our picnic areas are a job creating initiative and we can supply you with a security guard if required, to make you feel safer. We can also supply you with braai grids, wood and tinder.

The river is always flowing and is safe to splash around in, with a small little beach for those who want to soak up some sunshine D.

Situated close to the R38 (on the Low’s Creek road) this picnic site is a great spot to just get out of the house and into nature.

We have 2 metal tables for your convenience, as well as many unique seating places and a bench for the elderly with a back rest for relaxation overlooking the stream. There is some grass for those who want to get down low and in touch with nature.
You need to bring along your own timber and tinder, otherwise this can be provided for with your booking. You also need to bring along anything that you might require for your barbeque as there are no shops close by.
Unfortunately we do not have any toilet facilities at this site, so we do recommend you loving a tree and taking a short hike on one of the trails. A spade is recommended if you require to dig a hole. There are 4 braai areas to choose from at this site.
