Robe is the quintessential fashionable seaside holiday village ..a fishing village, frozen in time, where the elegant old homes of South Australia's landed gentry sit comfortably side by side with the new urban steel and glass fronted holiday condo's of the nouveau riche. Robe is also that very rare of creatures, a holiday destination unspoiled by the trappings of tourism - a place where life is lived at a gentle stroll and where morning walks on the beach and brunch in one of the local street cafes seems to be the prevailing principle. Robe is a town with wide sandy beaches with no traffic lights or neon signs. Robe Harbour - a sheltered marina in the heart of the township where the Robe's working fishing fleet, rubs shoulders with the luxury yachts and pleasure cruisers. Bordered by a very pleasant civic green, this is the jewel in the crown and a great spot for a picnic or just to wander around the wharf and take in the sights and sounds of this small fishing port.
