Surrounded by beautiful natural parklands, Heron Banks offers an exclusive safe haven for corporate executives, young families or retired couples alike.

Live to the rythym of the river

Heron Banks is perched on the banks of the Vaal River, meaning that the soothing sound of naturally flowing water is always in earshot.

There’s fishing at sunrise and good old-fashioned braais at sunset. For the water enthusiast seeking the thrill of making waves, there’s ease of access to your playground with jetties and boathouses located throughout the estate. The river is for moments of calm and for moments of excitement.

Your natural habitat

The river life brings nature to your doorstep while walking paths lead you to exploring the estate. Meander around in search of a rarely spotted species of bird from the abundant birdlife on offer or enjoy the sight of springbok and impalas grazing. It’s the kind of environment where children get to explore beyond the living room and discover a variety of friends.


Backyards are for golfing

Avid golfers need look no further for their escape than the Danie Obermeyer designed, 18-hole golf course that incorporates the wetlands to give it a distinct links-style character. Improve your game with putting greens, a driving range or team up with a club professional.

With a highly active golf club of over 500 members, regular golf days and a host of tournaments including the Ladies Free State Open and Senior Tour Pro-Am, there will always be opportunities to test your skills.

Play the 19th hole

The open and tranquil setting of the clubhouse at Heron Banks provides the ideal setting for social gatherings.

You can always escape for some alone time and sit outside in comfort watching the natural inhabitants of the estate go about their business. For the golfer, it’s the perfect place to replenish and quench your thirst before heading off to face the back nine. The clubhouse caters for everyone.

Give your lifestyle an escape

Join a crowd and enjoy the wide-open spaces of estate living at one of the many organised parkruns or take to the BMX trails for your daily exercise.
