Our second stop from Warrnambool on our Lap Of Oz is Robe SA. We had heard lots about it beaches, its amazing fishing and its great town centre rich with history. We were excited to stop in here and it definitely didn't disappoint!!
ROBE, SA is a beautiful coastal town about 4 hours drive from Adelaide or Warrnambool depending on which way your headed. It was originally a Shipping Port for the wool industry way back in 1847. It has a charming town centre including a couple of historic Pubs that have been operating since the 1800's.
We stayed at the fantastically maintained Lakeside Tourist Park, located on the waters edge of Lake Fellmongery and only a short stroll into the main street of town and all that it has to offer.
The Park itself is well laid out, roomy and expertly maintained with lush lawns and landscaped gardens. The caravan sites are spacious and we easily manoeuvred our 23foot Jurgens through the park no worries. The camping area is great and has a heap of sites with plenty of shelter and shade. The newly appointed owners/managers are a lovely couple who are only to happy to help out with anything you need and some great advice on what the area has to offer.
We had an Adventure packed week here in Robe. Our activities included checking out Robe itself, finding out about its history and checking out the Heritage buildings around the town. We had an amazing day trip to Beachport via the 4wd tracks along the beach and through the Little Dip Conservation Park.
A few afternoons were spent on the sands of Long Beach, which is only a few minutes drive from the Lakeside Tourist Village and it's 4wd accessible. The relaxed atmosphere and flat hard sands really reminded us of Cable Beach in Broome, WA.
