MOSSEL BAY FACTS

Mossel Bay is Harbour Town with about 130 000 people which is situated on the Garden Route on the East Coast of the Western Cape, South Africa. It is about 4.5 hours from Cape Town City Centre to Mossel Bay and 400km west of Port Elizabeth . which is the largest city in the Eastern Cape Province. Mossel Bay is a very important Tourist and Farming Region of the Western Cape Province. The older parts of Mossel Bay occupy the North  Facing side of Cape St Blaize Peninsula, while the newer parts have spread eastwards along the Shores of the Bay. 

The town relies heavily upon Tourism, fishing, farming and the commercial harbour which is the smallest in the Transnet Port Authority stable of South African Commercial harbour's until there was a discovery of Natural Offshore gas fields in 1969 which led to the development of a gas to liquids refinery which is operated by PetroSA.
