About our home

Welcome to our lovely, 4-bedroom holiday home in the historic coastal town of Robe (population 1100), in South Australia's Limestone Coast - halfway between Adelaide and Melbourne. Perched on the highest hilltop, with views to the ocean, the stone home has been lovingly renovated with polished timber floors, 2 x bathrooms, fireplace, BBQ and pergola area. The block is huge, set amongst an unruly native Australian bush garden, with a fenced yard for kids & pets. Perfect for guests seeking a casual country experience. Park your car and unwind - "Brigadoon" is walking distance to beach, supermarket, liquor store, cinema, restaurants, cafes, pubs and more.

More about us

  1. I'm the co-founder of a film production company and travel for work, often extending my work trips to explore new places.

  2. My boyfriend and kids all love to travel too - and sometimes join me on overseas adventures. I have two great kids: the 12 year old is into mountain bikes; the 14 year old sings and plays guitar.

  3. We love festivals, restaurants, musicals, movies, galleries, architecture, swimming and travel adventures anywhere... but our beach house in Robe is our favourite "happy place" to spend time together and with family and friends.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Robe is a historical fishing village located 3.5 hours south of Adelaide, and about 5 hours west of Melbourne. There are 1100 permanent residents, but during peak summer tourism the town can accommodate about 15,000 people.

Robe has a mild climate with the hottest days in Jan-March. During the winter months you can keep warm with cozy open-fire places in the pubs, great restaurants, driving tours of wineries, see a movie at the Southcoast Cinema and much more.

Buzzy restaurants
Sails (seafood and more); Gather (regional seasonal); Pizza Project (pasta and salad too); Robe Hotel for great pub food with billiards in the front bar
Cool bars
Caledonian Hotel, either in the dining room, or out the back during summer for live music and the Beach Cafe; Summer afternoons out the back of No.4
Cozy cafés
Mahalia on Robe Road for great house-roasted coffee, Union Cafe is delicious and well-priced, No. 4 has great breakfasts including a dog-friendly menu; Adventurous Spoon has lots of outdoor running around space for kids
Retail therapy
Fashion designer Binny has a fabulous retail shop just off the main street; shop at Holiday at Robe for beach chic; Loaves and Fishes for homeware and more; Steve's Surfshop has been in Robe for over 50 years, now run by Steve's son Sam and has everything from wetsuits to latest fashion in Rip Curl, Billabong... sporting wear and more
Bit of culture
Old, characterful fishing cottages and historical buildings are dotted throughout Robe; visit the marina to see the local cray-fishing industry in action; visit the Chinese monument and learn about the thousands of Chinese immigrants who landed at Robe during the gold rush and walked across land to the Victorian gold fields
Walks in the park
Walking tracks run along the entire coast of Robe, from Long Beach - across the outlet - cliff top path to Hoopers Beach - through the town - around the marina to the raised decked path - along the cliff top path to the red-and-white striped Oblisque - around the light house, and back into the town. About 8kms!
Spot of exercise
Surfing lessons with Charlie; canoe hire; the Golf Club welcomes players as does the bowling green (next to the pub). There are tennis courts, a skate park, three playgrounds for kids and a four-wheel driving track out at Little Dip
Day tripping
The best day trip is to pack the car and head to Long Beach for the day (5mins from the Main Street). Drive along the 10 kilometres of pristine coast to find the perfect spot to set up camp for the day. Or if you want to explore the region a bit more, then drive north to Cape Jaffa and Wangolina wineries or head south to Beachport (30 minutes); drive to historical Penola to visit the tiny cottages of Petticoat Lane and the Mary MacKillop centre (1 hour); and adjoining Coonawarra wine region boasting 30+ world-class wineries (https://coonawarra.org/about/maps-brochures/); or tour the World-Heritage listed Naracoorte Caves (about 1hr 20 minutes)
