A fertile, citrus-producing area irrigated by the waters of the Hartebeespoort Dam.

To the South of Brits, beneath a karee tree, the armistice treaty of the Boer Civil War was signed in 1864 and, nearby De Wildt station, a famous speech by General Hertzog in 1912 led to the formation of the National Party.

Founded in 1924 on the farm Roode Kopjes, it was named for the owner Gert Brits.
