Matjes River Rock Shelter

The Matjes River Rock Shelter most certainly the most impressive midden I have visited both in size and in the amount of information available to the visitor.

The midden is found on the western slope above the Matjes River at Keurboomstrand, and can be reached by following the Cathedral Rock Walk.

With an elevation of about 50 metres and views across the coastline, this must have been some luxury accommodation!
