Donkin Heritage Trail
Get to know Port Elizabeth on personal level, explore the 5km trail that follows in the footsteps of the 1820 Settlers.
The Donkin Heritage Trail links no less than 47 national monuments and historical sites in Central Port Elizabeth and is named after the then acting governor of the Cape Colony, Sir Rufane Donkin. This historical trail includes some fascinating facts about the area. Points of interest along the trail are signposted with information boards, making the trail very easy to self-navigate and a pretty neat way to get you walking around town.
The Donkin Heritage Trail booklet is sold at Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism’s Donkin Reserve Information Office.
Doncaster Cottages are situated on the trail.
