Bourke's Luck Potholes is a magnificent natural attraction located along the Panorama Route, approximately 35km north of the town of Graskop in Mpumalanga, and approximately a 20 minute drive from God's Window. This natural water feature marks the beginning of the Blyde River Canyon, the greenest canyon in the world, and has been formed by years and years of swirling whirlpools eroding holes into the bedrock of the Treur River.
Bourke's Luck Potholes has a visitor's centre with a small kiosk, toilets, and a 700m winding pathway that leads down to waterfalls and bridges over the canyon. It is said that if you throw coins over your shoulder into the canyon that you will be leaving all of your bad luck behind. The track is wheelchair accessible to a point. A curio and craft market is available in the parking lot.
The potholes were named after Tom Burke, a gold digger who staked a claim nearby. Although his land did not produce any gold at all, he correctly predicted that large gold deposits would be found in the area.Other features of the Panorama Route nearby include the Three Rondawels, God's Window, the Blyde River Canyon, and numerous magnificent waterfalls.
