The history of Newlands
The beautiful suburb of Newlands is known all over the world, mostly because of the famous Newlands rugby stadium and Sahara cricket grounds but after one visit you'll find yourself returning again and again. With easy access from the M3 and N2 highway, Newlands is situated 10km from Cape Town and 18km from Cape Town International Airport. Willem van der Stel, son of Simon van der Stel, followed in his fathers' political footsteps and in 1700, as Governor of Cape Town, he was awarded land outside of Cape Town. He named the area De Nieuwe land, and developed it as a country estate. Between 1791 and 1826 ownership of the area went from private to government to private. In 1860 the village of Newlands was established and by 1864 the railway line was extended to Newlands.
