It is situated on a 10 kilometer plateau between the Outeniqua Mountains to the north and the Indian Ocean to the south. The town of George was established as a result of the growing demand for timber and the wood used in building, transport and furniture.
George has an Oceanic climate, with warm summers, and mild to chilly winters. It is one of the highest rainfall regions in South Africa. Most rain falls in the winter and spring months, brought by the humid sea winds from the Indian Ocean. Annually the town of George plays host to several local, national and international events.
