General Information

Westonaria is a close-knit conurbation of ten suburban townships in the west of Gauteng province of South Africa. It is situated in the West Rand of Gauteng.

The town is situated about 45 km west of Johannesburg and 18 km south of Randfontein. Westonaria amidst gold fields and forms the nucleus of five gold mines and is accessible by road and rail making it convenient for commuters to Johannesburg.

Westonaria developed in 1938 alongside the Libanon Venterspost gold mines. Times were hard as mineshafts were sunk and abandoned time and again. In the two decades after its inception, The Western Areas, Kloof Gold and Elsburg Gold Mining Companies started more successful mines. They managed to extract a vast quantity of gold from tremendous depths.

At first called Venterspost, the name was changed to Westonaria when municipal status was attained in 1952. The name is a homophone of ‘western area’. The greater Westonaria consists of a number of satellite towns, being –Westonaria, Hillshaven, Glenharvie, Venterspost, Libanon, Waterpan, Bekkersdal, Simunye. South Africa’s first national democratic election held in April 1994 heralded change to the old system of separate development and resulted in the amalgamation of the Bekkersdal Town Committee with the Westonaria Town Council forming a council serving the communities of the greater Westonaria.
