Steenbras River mouth – situated at 34° 12’S; 18° 49’E. It is located in the Western Province between the coastal towns of Gordon’s Bay and Rooi Els. The total length of the Steenbras River from its mouth to its origin in the Hottentots Holland Mountains is approximately 17km. The Steenbras catchment is estimated at 70 km2. This catchment is situated between the Hottentots Holland Mountains and Koeëlberg

Gordon’s Bay is the smallest of three towns in the Helderberg region, so named after the Helderberg Mountain which is part of the Hottentots-Holland Mountains which dwarf the locality on two sides. Gordon’s Bay was originally named “Fish Hoek”, many years before the town of the same name, located on the western side of False Bay, was founded. Evidence of this can be seen on the outside wall of the local Post Office.

Gordon’s Bay consists of the old village, situated around the old harbour and Bikini Beach, the mountainside on the lower slopes of the Hottentots-Holland mountains overlooking False Bay, and the low-lying suburbs close to the main beach, making up the most recent expansion of the town.
