Swinburne is a tiny village just off the N3 highway. It is located between the towns of Van Reenen and Harrismith.

The bridge, over the Wilge River, in the town is the second oldest bridge in the Free State. It was completed in 1884.

Although Swinburne itself may not offer much in the way of facilities, the surrounding area is both beautiful and a great area for hiking and climbing.

Rensburgkop Mountain dominates the surrounding skyline and is popular with climbers and hikers.
