Robe - South East Region, South Australia.
This historic port was surveyed in 1846 and named after Governor Robe.
For many years it flourished but in the latter part of the Victorian
age it entered a slump which was reversed only by the booming tourist
trade of the post-Second World War period. These days it is said that
holiday-makers from as far afield as Melbourne are bidding up the price
of holiday homes in Robe. It's easy to see why - coastal scenery,
historic setting, mainly pleasant climate and excellent location with
respect to other tourist attractions in the South East. The town has
long been aware of its significance as a heritage centre and trades well
on it. The lover of history will experience much enjoyment by setting
out on foot with the walking guide and exploring the town. Allow plenty
of time !
