Newcastle or Post Halt Two as it was once known as, and once a popular stopover for wagons journeying between Port Natal and the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek (South African Republic) was established in 1864, it was later temporarily known as Viljoensdorp during the Boer occupation in 1889. Newcastle was named after the Colonial secretary in Queens Victoria’s Government, who was the Earl of Newcastle.
Newcastle is the connection point of three provinces, this 'natural' destination and departure point for travellers and is now the largest town in northern KwaZulu- Natal...with all the facilities and benefits of city life a mere ten minutes' drive from a charismatic, pristine mountain countryside. With consistent growth over the last forty years Newcastle has grown from a rural town to what is now referred to as the capital of Northern KwaZulu-Natal.
Newcastle was very involved in the Anglo-Boer War and today shares its name with 27 other towns worldwide. Today it’s a major venue for the main sport competitions, as the town has a wealth of facilities to offer, such as an Olympic size swimming pool. Chelmsford Nature Reserve, with a wonderful variety of fishing, wild game and birding opportunities, as well as water sports on the dam, is just outside Newcastle.
