Robe's Heritage

  • location icon 1 Victoria St Robe SA 5276

Robe was founded by the State Government as a seaport to service the southeast of South Australia in 1846 and by 1856 was South Australias second major colonial wool export port

As a result of good luck and good planning many of the original buildings reflecting the towns history and heritage have been retained and restored.

Visitors to Robe delight in experiencing its rustic charm and heritage with many buildings from the 1800s being largely unchanged in their appearance.

Many of the buildings within the heritage precinct are state heritage listed and can be viewed by talking a leisurely walk through the town guided by a heritage walks brochure that can be collected from the Visitor information centre or the Customs House museum.
