Twee Rivieren - not to be confused with the Langkloof town of "Twee Riviere", 180km to the east - is a small residential suburb in George, South Africa. It is located in the northern area of the city between Denneoord to the north and Bo-dorp to the south. "Twee Rivieren" is a Dutch name, meaning "Two Rivers". Its name is derived from its location, nestled between two branches of the Kat River.

The suburb of Twee Rivieren, George, is home to two prominent churches, The Dutch Reformed Church "Moedergemeente", as well as the only Greek Orthodox Church in George, where services are still conducted in Greek.

A popular attraction in this suburb is the decoration of Oewer Street over the Christmas period. This has become an annual event since 2005 and has attracted a lot of visitors who come to view the festive decorations and lights between Christmas and new year.
