Listen to some local music

Boulders Beach Penguins
Hop on the train and make your way to Simon’s Town – home to South Africa’s navy and the far more cute African Penguin. Stop off at the Kalk bay harbour for some fresh fish, and to watch REAL fish wives “goeing die taal” (throwing the language around) while lazy seals get fat on titbits. for a bite to eat, the Brass bell pub and Olympia Cafe on the way back home – you’re in for a treat!

South African Astronomical Observatory
The reason this area is called Observatory is because the headquarters of the National Centre for Optical and Infrared Astronomy is based in this suburb. Every second and fourth Saturday of the month at 8pm you are welcome to have a peek. The headquarters include offices, the main library, computing facilities, engineering workshops and historic telescopes. This is your chance to look through the historic McClean telescope and spot that shooting star.
