"A charming seaside village - perfect for family living, retirement or holidays"

Robe is a picturesque seaside town, situated 330 kilometres to the south-east of Adelaide. The closest major town and business centre is Mt Gambier, about an hour's drive away.

The main street of the town has a lot to offer, with supermarkets and grocery stores, a post office and number of small shops, cafés and art galleries.

The town is on the waterfront, with a port to the east and long stretches of sandy surf beaches to the west. Whilst a lovely spot in summer with some warm and sunny days, for the most part Robe is quite cold and windy with high rainfall.

Homes in the area are large with gardens, and the northern side of the town is ringed by farming properties. Many modern beach houses have popped up around the town in recent years.

It is a lovely spot to raise a young family, retire or holiday. The crowds are very cyclical, and the town is jam-packed with tourists in summer, and relaxed and sleepy in the winter.
