Robe (15th Nov)



Hi Again, we have spent 4 days in the town of Robe South Australia, this is a fishing port renown for its crayfish, we arrived with a bit of wind blowing but the sun was shinning and around the mid 20’s temperature so in all a good week to be walking the beaches and along the many cliff tops.

Its like a mini 12 Apostels around this town, a lot of new development with housing and good dog friendly beaches, there are quite a few nice restaurants in town and we had a slack attack from cooking and ate out every day lunch and dinna, mmmm! the seafood was too good to walk by so lots of fish and chips down on the marina, and the odd ale or 3 in the very old pubs, i believe the Caledonian has the oldest pub licence in Australia, but the best fish and chips was at Polly’s on the marina.

The below pic of the Obelisk it was erected on Cape Dombey in 1852 and was used to navigate the entrance to Guichen Bay, as well as to store rocket lifesaving equipment. The firing of rockets, carrying baskets to distressed ships to bring passengers ashore, saved many lives. It later assisted passing ships with navigation because its height of 12m makes it visible 20km out to sea.
