Route 62 covers the area between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn, the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth. The route offers more scenic possibilities than the alternative N2 Highway, connecting the Breede River Valley region and the Little Karoo. The road was originally developed to link various rural towns and villages to major centres. Several small towns lie along the route and they have many treasures to be discovered. The scenic route passes through farming towns such as Calitzdorp, Ladismith, Barrydale, Amalienstein, Montagu, Bonnievale, Robertson, Ashton, De Rust, Rawsonville, McGregor, Worcester, Ceres, Tulbagh and Wolseley.
