Go see the magnificent rock features called “Bourke’s Luck Potholes”. These enormous potholes have been carved by pebbles swirling around in the pools where the Blyde and Treur River meet and become one.

The confluence of these two river forces over eons eroded the red sandstone of the Blyde River Canyon into Bourke's Luck Potholes which now shimmers full of well-wishers tokens. Named after an 18th century man, Tom Bourke, who had little luck in striking gold but whose namesake rock formations now catch coins attached to golden wishes that descend the sheer cliff faces into said water sculpted pits. His claim of a densely gold deposited earth left him empty handed but later proved fortunate for other gold seekers in the region.
