At almost the furthest southern tip of Africa is Bredasdorp.

Bredasdorp was founded around a Dutch Reformed Church in 1838. Two people were involved in the location of, firstly Bredasdorp and secondly Napier. Michiel van Breda, the first mayor of Cape Town,who named the town, and Pieter Voltelyn van der Byl, could not decide on a location for a Dutch Reformed Church, and so the two split up and Napier was subsequently founded around a second church.

Van Breda was also famous for and the father of Merino sheep, which was and is a large sustaining factor in these regions of the Western Cape.

Aviation and armaments are industries that were brought to the region and is now a major contributing sustainable financial factor to the region. Test Flight and Development Centre and Denel set up shop here and one reason is the dry air which helps with stable weather conditions for aeroplane test flights.

Other industries which contribute to the town growth is the farming of Wheat, canola, Milk and Indigenous Fynbos. A plant species protected by law.
