Post covid – our family took a long, overdue holiday to Robe South Australia.
This was our second trip, as we enjoyed our holiday there so much a couple of years before – and, having endured a long lockdown in Victoria due to Covid, we were so looking forward to being able to travel further than 5kms again.
We stayed at the Robe Holiday Park which was only 2kms from Long Beach, a beautiful long, sandy white beach that went for miles. Long Beach is a very safe swimming beach if you have little ones. You do however, need to ensure that you have your own shade, take sunscreen, and water.
Robe is one of the few beaches you can drive your car directly onto the beach – both 2wd and 4wd will be safe, but care needs to be taken to avoid being bogged when you exit.
Robe is 125km from Mount Gambier or just on 6 hours from Melbourne
Robe has plenty of campgrounds, holiday parks, and motels. I can recommend the Robe Holiday Park and the Robetown Motor Inn and Apartments. Both are reasonably priced and offer great amenities, handy to town and the beach.
