Different routes can be used to get to Standerton:

  • Take the N3 to Heidelberg and then the R23 Heidelberg-South/Standerton offramp. Look for the R23 to Volksrust in Standerton.

You can avoid going through Volksrust's CBD by turning left at the first street in Volksrust (R543) and continue on to Wakkerstroom.
