Robe, with its fabulous coastline and small-town charm, promises an idyllic getaway without any compromise on modern luxuries. A popular destination with city-dwellers, this little fishing port becomes a hub of frenetic activity during vacation time. The rugged landscape of limestone cliffs with the churning ocean beyond makes for scenic vistas that one can’t simply get enough of! While the town beach with its powdery sand and crystal clear water is ideal for relaxing, the easy hike to the iconic Cape Dombey Obelisk is a must for the stunning views. Belying its little town image, Robe is home to a generous number of heritage monuments worthy of exploration. Wine and beer enthusiasts have plenty to cheer given the many wineries and the town’s quaint brewery, which still sticks to time tested methods of making beer. Unique, boutique accommodations complete the picture-perfect holiday scene.
