This region is home to Roodepoort and much of its surrounding developments in Johannesburg’s centre and north, with areas such as Florida to the southeast and Bram Fischerville to the south.
It is well linked to the rest of the city with major roads, such as Main Reef Road, Ontdekkers Road, Beyers Naude Drive and Hans Strijdom Drive. It is also conveniently situated for access to leading Gauteng attractions, such as the Cradle of Humankind, Magaliesberg and Pilansberg.
The suburbs in the north of Roodepoort are among the most attractive residential areas in the metro, with houses dotted along rolling hills offering good views of the city to the east and the Magaliesberg to the west.
There are plenty of open spaces, golf courses and entertainment areas, as well as the city’s premier park, the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden, which was previously known as the Witwatersrand Botanical Garden.
Region C is also home to two universities – the University of South Africa’s Florida campus and the local campus of Australia’s Monash University, in Ruimsig. It is well-served by amenities, including shopping centres, schools, a museum and theatre, health facilities, country lodges, restaurants, sporting facilities and nature trails.
