Robe, SA

Experience its relaxing charm and fine hospitality, laze on famous Long Beach, sample its outstanding seafood and local wines, or just walk down the village main street searching for that fine coffee experience. In fact Robe has its own coffee roasting house and you can sample Mahalia Coffee at the factory door, or in most of the café and restaurants of the village.


Long Beach is open to public traffic during summer months. So stock the car up and drive the 17 kilometres of fine beach searching for your own piece of paradise.

The Robe Boat Haven provides excellent launching facilities for boats, and is an active commercial port with the local southern rock lobster fleet working between October and May each year.

Robe has extensive historic walks with brochures taking you on the guided walk available from the Robe Visitor Information Centre.

Robe has extensive links to the Chinese Gold Trail. In the 1870s thousands of Chinese landed at Robe to avoid the Poll Tax in Victorian ports. They rested in Robe before trekking to the Victorian Goldfields.

The village is surrounded by conservation parks and offers outstanding off-road experiences. Stay to the tracks to avoid damage to these sensitive coastal dune systems.


Robe has extensive accommodation options and is an ideal spot to base yourself to explore the remaining parts of the Limestone Coast.
