General Information

The industrial city of Vanderbijlpark lies in the South of Gauteng on the Vaal River in South Africa. The city was founded in 1949 and got its name its founder, Dr Hendrik van der Bijl. The city is largely industrial with 60% of its residents working in factories and is home to Vanderbijl Steel and its steel mill.

The town, which forms Sedibeng's border along the Vaal River, was proclaimed in 1949 and attained municipal status in 1952 when Governor General Dr EG Jansen opened ISCOR's second steelworks. Vanderbijlpark's 500 000 trees shade streets named after scientists, engineers, composers, poets, writers and medical practioners. They house one of the most cosmopolitan communities in the country.

The Vaal River is a popular holiday destination for many South Africans who own holiday homes along the banks of the river and water sports are a popular activity in the river.
