Knysna Oyster Festival 2013

Knysna Oyster Festival 2013 - The Best 10 days of your Winter!

The annual Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival is one of South Africa’s most popular festivals with huge appeal for sports lovers, families and those in search of a great party!

More than 100 exciting events ranging from cycling, running and adventure races to wine and whisky tastings and gala evenings, are expected to draw about 65 000 people to the beautiful Garden Route town over the 10 days of the festival.

The festival’s two main sporting events, the Pick n Pay Cape Times Knysna Forest Marathon and the Pick n Pay Weekend Argus Rotary Knysna Cycle Tour, will give participants the unique opportunity to run and cycle through the ancient indigenous forests of Knysna and experience the scenic beauty of the area.

And if marathons are not your style, there’s a full programme of adventure and soft sports for the whole family to participate in, including paddling, golf, bowls, soccer, night biking and angling.

Oyster-related events include the annual oyster-shucking (opening) competition, the ever-popular oyster eating competition and the Pick n Pay Oyster & Wine Mardi Gras – a fabulous evening of oysters and wine tasting.

Oyster Hotspots will be selling oysters in a variety of tastes and flavours at give-away prices!

The South African Navy, which always plays a huge part in the success of the Festival, will once again be visiting Knysna, making a grand entrance through the Knysna Heads in their huge minesweepers. And the Navy’s internationally acclaimed band will entertain festival-goers during the street parade and live concert at the Waterfront.

There’s a great programme for kids too – the Pick n Pay Young Oyster Festival includes youth theatre, puppet shows, creative art workshops and cooking courses. The Knysna Sport School Sports Fair will give kids the opportunity to try their hand at a variety of sports, free of charge.

The Pick n Pay Oyster Festival Guide featuring the full programme and a list of all Hotspots, will be available soon from the Knysna and Sedgefield Tourism offices.

PETRUS-SE-BRAND CYCLE ROUTE - Diepwalle Knysna

This route has been planned for mountain bikers of average fitness and covers a distance of just over 24km or 48km return.

The ride begins at the Diepwalle Forest Station office (where you obtain your permit) to Garden of Eden.If you are cycling fit, the route can be ridden in 2 hours.
The route starts at Diepwalle descends a few kms down the Uniondale road. It breaks away to the left at 2.8km. Keep a sharp look out for the marker on the left. The track now follows the contoured bed of the old narrow-gauge forest railway which used to run from Ysterhoutrug to Knysna. (Features in Dalene Matthee’s “Toorbos’)

The route turns left into the petrusbrandpad and begins to descend to the Petrusbrand River. One climbs from the stream, winding toward Petrusbrand eiland.On this section one rides through some beautiful medium- moist to dry type forest. Many of the old yellowwoods (Podocarpus latifolius) are crowned with “old mans beard” (Usnea spp.)

Passing through more moist and medium-moist high forest, one breaks out into fynbos of Kleineiland (“small island”) – a island of Cape Fynbos surrounded by indigenous forest. The contrast is amazing. This is a good resting point and on a clear day the view over the Tsitsikamma mountains.

The route descends to the Kleineiland River valley. The surface is very cobbled- take care! This is the lowest point of the route and the start of a fairly severe climb over 4km.

The last section of route, through the forest on an old timber slip-path, is the most exciting. It winds it’s way down to Garden of Eden, offering some fast single-track. The alternative route follows the Fisanthoek road to the N2.

For your information:
1. Carry your permit on you.

2. The route is open from dawn to dusk. Do not, however, start your ride after 14:00 in winter or 15:00 in summer.

3. Please do not leave marked trail!

4. Tel: Regional office 044-3825466. Maps available at Diepwalle Forest Station and Garden of Eden kiosk
