New Hanover is a small town situated halfway between Pietermaritzburg and Greytown.

It was founded in 1850. The original German settlers named it after the German city of Hanover.

The surrounding farmlands produce a variety of crops including timber, fruit and grain, but sugarcane is the main one.

New Hanover is not far from Albert Falls Dam.
