... is located in the Panorama South area of the Northeast region in South Africa.

This town was founded in 1881 by an English prospector Graham Barber, whose discoveries initiated a huge goldrush in the area. Gold is still mined in the vicinity and tours of the workings are a significant attraction.

The town is prettily set in a bowl of hills, amidst lush subtropical vegetation. It has considerable old world charm and is a world apart from the more heavily touristed areas around Hazyview to the north.

It is conveniently situated for self-drivers heading between Kruger and KwaZulu Natal to the south, making for a decent one or two night stopover.

There's not much in the way of high quality places to stay in Barberton.
