Planted in 1811, the majestic Bertha’s Oak with her 4m trunk was the biggest in the southern hemisphere. 

Political leaders, activists and church goers would gather for meetings under her shady branches and she soon became synonymous with the struggle against forced removals in Sophia Town in the 1950’s.

There were virtually no trees in Johannesburg when it emerged as a small town after Harrison’s founding’s. The discovery of gold heralded the arrival of mining companies and fast growing strong wood was required for shoring up the shafts. 

It was at this time that Eucalyptus, imported from Australia was planted in large quantities.  

These trees were planted in plantations around present-day Parktown and Saxonwold – land that belonged to the mining companies and was not considered part of Johannesburg.  The giant Eucalyptus on the WITS campus, was declared a champion tree in March 2003.

This view suite is nestled in the centre of the hotel and boasts views over the city, as well as uninterrupted views over the rolling terraced gardens.
