This wonderful city is also well known for the 200,000 year old Nahoon Fossil footprint found on the Nahoon beach in Bats Cave. This discovery is the oldest homo-sapiens footprint known to science. Another major attraction would be The German Settler's Museum, which commemorates the arrival of more than 2,000 German women, men, and children in 1858/9. These 2,000 odd people were the fertilizer that expanded the settlement to what it is today.
