Geography and History

Hutchinson is a village and former railway junction in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.  Hutchinson is located 12 kilometres (7 mi) south-east of Victoria West, on the Cape Town–Kimberley railway line.

Hutchinson owes its existence to the railway developments that followed as a result of the diamond rush. It was named after Sir Walter Hely Hutchinson, Governor of the Cape Colony in the last decade before establishment of the Union of South Africa in 1910. 

In 1905 Hutchinson became a junction when a branch line to Victora West and Carnarvon was opened. This line was extended in 1915 to Williston and in 1918 to Calvinia.  It was closed in 2001, but passenger trains on the main line still stop at Hutchinson to serve Victoria West.

Accommodation includes B&B’s, Guesthouses, Farm Stays, Camping and Self Catering.
