Riviersonderend is the centre of a thriving farming district and takes its name from the river which was once thought to have no end.

The town was established in 1922 when Ms Edith McIntyre sold her farm Tierhoek to the church council to establish a Dutch Reformed Church. The town was laid out three years later.
Riviersonderend offers beautiful mountain and river scenery and is renowned for sightings of the endangered Blue Crane in the town and on neighbouring farms.

There is fishing, swimming and canoeing in the river and beautiful species of fynbos can be seen from the top of the 4,4 km circular Kleinbergie Hiking Trail. There is also another 7 km trail along the Riviersonderend. Some farms have 4 x 4 trails, hunting and excellent bass fishing.
