The Limestone Coast in South Australia is a region of striking cliff formations and caves, beautiful bays and picturesque gold-sand beaches. Nestled in the midst of this natural wonderland is the small seaside town of Robe. With its lovely port, rich maritime history and wonderful food and wine, it’s an ideal holiday spot. Whether you’re looking to relax, explore, or get active with myriad aquatic activities, you’ll find accommodation in Robe to suit.
Hotels and motels
Robe has a range of motels and hotels to suit couples, families and groups of friends. Stay close to the action in town, overlooking the port, or further afield close to tranquil lakes. Hotels and motels range from budget bargains to beautiful boutique properties. This is a great option if you’re looking to mix it up with a walking tour of historic landmarks, some shopping, trips to central Long Beach and time spent enjoying the delicious fresh seafood and regional wines at the cafes and restaurants. Make a point to drop into the Visitor Information Centre on Mundy Terrace for ideas about what to do and where to go.
For those traveling in larger groups or looking to stay for longer periods, holiday homes can be a practical choice. Robe has a huge range of holiday houses and apartments, located in town, by the waterside and further afield. Holiday properties will give you all the comforts of home, and you have the option of heading out to the fantastic cafes and restaurants, or self-catering.
Why not try your hand at fishing along Long Beach or any of the local watering holes? Not a fisherman? Then you might prefer a day trip to the local Robe and nearby Mount Benson wine regions. These emerging wine regions are producing some quality drops, including crisp whites and vibrant, bold reds. The Visitor Information Centre can provide you with information and maps, or you can check out the official Robe website and the Mt Benson website for information on cellar doors and local food producers worth a visit.
Caravan parks and cabins
Robe is situated on lovely Long Beach, and lies adjacent to beautiful natural parks. To be close to the natural attractions, you might opt for a caravan adjacent to Gulches Bay, or on the shores of lovely Lake Fellmonger.
Nature lovers might enjoy a trip to Little Dip National Park, south of Robe. The park is great for four-wheel drives, or you might explore the sand dunes and enjoy the cliff walk, which winds back towards town. Birdwatchers may be rewarded, as the area is known for its rich bird life. Continuing through the national park, you’ll reach pretty Nora Crania Bay. Or enjoy the coastal drive to Beachport, where you can stop at the historic jetty, and see the interesting Workwise Cutting, a ravine-like watercourse that was hand-carved in the 1950s by just two local men using a tractor.
A final word
Robe is a wonderful spot for short stays or longer adventures. From swimming to spas, cafes to cliff-walks, harbour fishing to helicopter flights, you’ll find an array of things to do. There’s plenty of accommodation options in Robe to suit all tastes and all budgets such as the Robe Harbour View Motel. So why not book now and start planning your ideal Robe getaway.
