Robe: A Destination for the Diverse Traveller

Robe is located on the south coast of Australia, approximately 350 kilometres from Adelaide. The coastal town has a long history, with the first European settlers arriving in the very early 1800s. Heritage buildings are set against the brilliant blue water and vast bushland. Much of the life and dining in Robe is centred around Guichen Bay, and even the holiday rentals, which are bountiful, are within close proximity to the water. As Robe boasts a Mediterranean climate, outdoor exploration- whether inland or out on the water- is nearly always possible.

Learn About Robe's History

The history of this holiday town is long and colourful. To learn more about Robe’s maritime involvement, shipwrecks and even the gold rush, visit the Robe Customs House Museum. The museum is accessible via a donation and provides hours of activities for adults and children alike.

Though not a historic site, the Robe Fisherman's Memorial provides valuable insight into the seaside heritage of this town. The memorial features informative plaques and allows visitors to pay their respects while looking over the water.

For a more thorough look at the history of Robe, take a walking tour through town. There are approximately 84 historic buildings in town, all of which have been meticulously maintained and restored for an authentic look at years past. In addition, there are historic sites sprinkled throughout the town. The combination of the two creates a charming environment for an interesting holiday.

Fun near the Water

The main beach in Robe is known as Long Beach, and here, water sports are king. Choose from exhilarating options such as water skiing, windsurfing, surfing and wakeboarding or from calmer activities such as swimming, diving and snorkelling. The waters on this beach are safe enough for children, as long as they stay near the shore. One of the most unique features of Long Beach is that you have the option to drive your car right onto the stunning white sand. Sunset picnics, long strolls and scenic photography are all popular options on the shore. For those who enjoy fishing, Long Beach is a great place to cast a line, with species such as salmon, whiting, garfish, mullet, flathead and many more inhabiting the waters.

Savour the Local Fare

With the close proximity to the water, the seafood in Robe is unforgettable. This holiday destination is renowned for its crayfish, and many of the local restaurants serve the delicacy with pride. Fresh fish is also popular in the eateries, with the seafood coming right from Robe's water. In addition, the area's climate provides the ideal growing conditions for a variety of fruits and vegetables. Wash your fantastic, locally harvested meal down with a glass of wine straight from Robe's wine region. The most popular type of wine grown in the area is cabernet sauvignon, though a close second is shiraz.

Stay Active in Robe

Keeping yourself busy is never a challenge when in Robe. The Robe Golf Club is a 14-fairway, 18-hole golf course sporting beautiful coastal vistas. The onsite clubhouse is ideal for events, and there is a regular schedule of competitions for hardcore golfers. While the blue water views are breathtaking, the bush in Robe is just as impressive. An unbeatable way to experience the bush is on horseback, and Robe Equestrian Park provides the perfect place to do as much. Before leaving for home, the Robe Sealife Centre is another must-visit destination. The owners and workers are happy to give individual guided tours of the aquarium to inform the guests about various forms of marine life.

Getting to Robe

Travelling to Robe from either Melbourne or Adelaide is a beautifully scenic journey that only takes a few hours. Best of all, because of Robe's central location with regards to other coastal towns, this destination is the perfect home base for a South Australia escapade.

Beautiful location, peaceful

4 of 5
This home is in a great location if you are wanting a 'get away from it all' break, which we did. The kitchen was very well appointed and had most things you needed and it was great to have so much outdoor space and direct access to the beach. The one reverse cycle unit in the living room wasn't working when we got there and was replaced after two nights/mornings, which were unfortunately particularly cold ones. The agent acted quickly to get the work done. I think a combustion heater would be good in this home so that the whole home could be kept warm and cosy because the rest of the house that had no heating/cooling (or perhaps install a second split system?). We were grateful for the electric heated blankets. The home needs refreshing in a few places, sofa, rugs, the outdoor sun beds were badly damaged and should have been thrown out (they weren't needed for our winter break), cushions outside were in need of replacing too. Overall though, I would go back for a winter break and highly recommend it.
