The area offers many outdoor activities, arts and crafts, tranquillity and relaxation. Surrounded by mountain trails, fruit orchards, olive groves and vineyards, the village of McGregor has maintained a rural peaceful ambience which is an inspiration to artists. There are walking/hiking trails, mountain biking, bird watching in Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve, a pottery studio, art galleries, cob house building and enjoyable meals at one of the many coffee shops, restaurants or pubs.

Explore the wine route of Robertson wine valley and spend quality time relaxing.


Thornvilla is a working wine farm and also produces plums, apricots and various vegetables.

Two mountain bikes are available to explore the farm and 2 kayaks for fishing or canoeing. Activities on the farm include kayaking on the dam, bird watching, hiking (spot one of the springboks in the reserve), fishing in the farm dams, picnics, cycling and just resting.

The name Fossil Hills comes from the fossils that were and are still found on the farm which date back to the fish age of 355 million years ago.
