Bourke's Luck Potholes

Bourke's Luck Potholes are rock formations that formed centuries ago by erosion. They are located 35 km from Graskop and you should take a walk on trails and bridges of 700 meters (5 minutes) to see this natural 'wishing well'.

So do not forget to bring a coin! The bizarre cylinder shaped holes created by millions of years of water flow in rapid circular movements resulted in the confluence of the Mourning and the Blyde rivers. The swirling waters, together with sand and pebbles polished rocks and thus created a beautiful natural art. The ravine in which these holes are located is 30 meters deep, but the holes themselves are about 6 meters deep. The area is named after Tom Bourke, who had ironically never had any luck in the time he was here looking for gold, but predicted that large quantities of gold would be found in this area ...

From the main building there are 2 hiking trails: the Bourke's Luck Potholes and the Bushman Trail Interpretive nature trail.
