                  Robe is located on the Southern Ports Highway. Nestled on the magnificent Guichen Bay it is surrounded on three sides by the Great Southern Ocean. Approximately 150kms from Mount Gambier it is the perfect location from which to explore the dynamic and diverse Limestone Coast. Day trips from Robe can include historic Penola (home of Australias first Saint - Mary McKillop), the ancient Naracoorte Limestone Caves, the volcanic remains of the Blue Lake in Mount Gambier and another 20 sites of World Heritage significance. Alternatively you can indulge your inner gourmet and take in the Limestone Coast's stunning produce including the famous Coonawarra wine region and more closely Mount Benson wine district.

                  Within the township of Robe itself you can swim your way along our famous, pristine beaches. Long Beach, Robe is one of the only remaining beaches in Australia that can be driven upon consisting of over 15 kms of straight, sweeping beach. Enjoy fishing in our fresh water lakes, outlets, drains, jetties, breakwaters or straight off the beaches. Kayak along our natural and man made waterways from inland drains to the ocean.

                  Robe has activities suitable for the young and the young at heart. There is plenty of retail therapy, bookstores, restaurants, two hotels The Robe Hotel and The Caledonian, an icecream parlour, movie theater, and gift shops. You can get out and active with a lawn bowls club with an ocean view to die for, play golf with more ocean views, tennis, squash, football, netball and any number of water sports.

                  Robe also has an incredible local history. Originally the second busiest port in South Australia the architecture and history is plentiful. Take a step back in time and learn about the arrival of Chinese fortune hunters who arrived in Robe by boat and walked to the Victorian gold fields just to evade taxes, or about Robes jail remains or about our incredible cemetary.

                  Robe is a town of history and modern comforts. Full of community spirit and loaded with natural wonder. You will love Robe and this Robe accommodation. Enjoy.
