What you see today has been pioneered by men like Leighton Hulett, who in 1954, set up a humble fishing camp on his farm Goedgeloof. It was his insistence on a certain amount of uniformity that gives St Francis Bay it’s unique character! Leighton later went on to acquire more land on the banks of the Kromme River, where in 1968, he began work on the beginnings of the impressive canals you can see today.
