Bourke’s Luck Potholes are found at the head of the Blyde River Canyon and are named after a luckless gold prospector who predicted the presence of gold deposits in the area but cruelly pitched his claim about 5 kilometres away from any deposits. The area is a deeply sculpted stretch of rock, with huge potholes scoured many metres deep by the action of the water. So deep in fact that the only way to get around the potholes is on a series of elevated walkways, which showcase the rounded and curved scenery very effectively.
