Visitors can enjoy the many eateries, wineries, parks, artists’ studios and the golf courses Alexandra has on offer. If you enjoy getting out into the wide, open spaces, there are many opportunities for recreation including boating, swimming, fishing or exploring the hills and valleys by foot, mountainbike or four-wheel drive.
