Top five Things to do in Robe suggested by Robe Tourism: A guide and a few ideas to help make your visit to Robe more enjoyable,
The whole idea of going to Robe is generally to do nothing, so filling your holiday calendar with all sorts of activities is probably contradictory to most people's requirements, however if you feel the need to do something other than lay on the beach and relax, then the following suggestions might be suitable.
if you're looking for something to do in Robe, just marginally more physical than sunbathing, then fishing is the ideal choice. Robe is renown for its seafood and has some great spots including the wharf at boat harbour (which is almost in the centre of town) plus rock fishing in Guichen Bay, and surf fishing at Long Gully, Wrights Bay and Longbeach, the latter being a 17 kilometer stretch of sand which runs to the west of Robe and best accessed via 4 wheel drive vehicles ( pictured above )
2. Dining Out
Robe has a reputation for excellent quality food, so while you're in Robe take the time to sample some of Robe's local produce. In particular make sure you sample some of the local seafood before you leave.
3. Woakwine Cutting
Robe's mini Panama canal - In 1960 Murray's McCourt, a local grazier (and ex-army engineer) borrowed money to buy a D7 Caterpillar tractor and a scraper used to build aircraft runways in World War II.
For the next three years he worked at cutting a channel from his property to Lake George. The result transformed his property, from a snake infested swamp into fertile grazing land. You can see this mini engineering marvel about 15 kms East of Robe - The original Caterpillar D7 and scraper are on display close to a lookout point which is located just off the Robe, Beachport road.
4. Cape Jaffa / Mt Benson Wine Region
another activity which won't raise your heart rate unduly and sure to be enjoyable is to visit one of the many wineries in the Mount Benson region.
This region is developing a reputation for the quality of its wines and there are a number of local wineries that welcome visitors to their property. Cellar door sales are available from Ralph Fowler wines, Norfolk Rise wines, Wangolina Station and Cape Jaffa wines.
The village of Cape Jaffa is a base for some professional fishermen and now has a new $14M marina that is worth looking at.
5. Picnic On The Beach.
Longbeach is one of a few beaches on the south coast that allows vehicle access and if you are a bit adventurous then a drive along Longbeach and a picnic on a secluded section of the beach is a great way to have your own Robinson Crusoe experience. It is generally recommended that you have a four wheel drive but there are plenty of two wheel drive vehicles that regularly use the beach as well. Before you go, pick up a leaflet from the Visitor Information Centre about the "Do's and Don'ts" of driving along the beach.
