Makana Tourism's Flashback Photo Contest Sponsored by Hill Street Manor

Go Back

Friday, 9th April 2021

What are your earliest and fondest memories of Makhanda, Riebeek-East, Salem and all the other historic and culturally rich towns of the Makana region?

Do you remember the first time you walked into a museum like the Observatory Museum and was amazed by the genuine Victorian Camera Obscura that allowed you to see the City from above?

Can you think back to your first taste of fresh bread from yesteryear bakeries such as Paula's Bakery?

Do you remember your first roadtrip to a school camp or took up a hike with your friends or family where you had fun exploring the great outdoors of Makhanda and surrounds?

Or what about your first shopping trip with mom to clothing department stores like the historic Muirhead and Gowie or Birch’s?

And then the times when you used to help mom or grandma cook elaborate meals for Sunday lunch and even made soap from scratch?

We could go on forever!
