Just moments before you enter the main township of Robe, tucked up unassumingly behind the beautiful sand dunes that frame the foreshore along Robes famous Long Beach, you will find Discovery Park Robe. What a sensational holiday spot for families and a fabulous place to make memories with the kids, whether it is a cabin stay or a camp site shared with friends.

Robe is a comfortable four hour drive from Adelaide (ok five with a stop at Meningie Playground), located in the South East of our state in the Limestone Coast region. Expect wineries, beaches, fantastic walks, history and wonderful local food and seafood here. This town explodes over summer and peak periods, little wonder why, as it is just a picture perfect costal setting, that has every thing you need.

We stayed in a Deluxe Beach Front Cabin (you won’t find better), and while you can only catch a glimpse of the sea over the lush vegetated dunes, it’s just a short direct 200m walk to the beach. Our cabin slept six with a bit of a fancy master bedroom (Queen, with crisp linen and our own TV) and the kids had their own room with two bunks and good quality innerspring mattresses. Of course there are accommodation options here for all budgets.

On our recent visit we struck inclimate weather, and Discovery Park Robe delivered the goods with it’s quality fully heated indoor pool. Happy kids and happy parents, because tired kids! We can only imagine how great this location would be in warmer times for for beach swimming or surf lessons right on the doorstep.

Now, it’s all about the kids right? Well mostly any way! This park has hands down got THE best adventure playground we have ever found in a caravan park any where in all of Australia, the end. Team it with the usual expected epic jumping pillow (which for the first time ever, actually wasn’t the highlight), pedal cart hire and an activity room with air hockey and you have a kid mecca. Seriously though, the playground rivals some of the best new city playgrounds being built in metropolitan Adelaide – and you know how impressive they can be. Think long double flying fox, great nest swing, huge rope climbing tower with forts and a nice medium sized slide. Oh wait! I just remembered the fishing boat that kids can play in too! Well played Discovery Parks, very on brand for this fishing town.

Discovery Park Robe has lovely grass sites, some with more shade than others. The amenities are clean and there are two laundries and two camp kitchens (one being bigger with some indoor seating). On the Saturday morning of our stay we were treated to a free pancake breakfast – talk about hospitality!

We always enjoy eating at The Project Robe – the kids meals are very generous and the pizza is hands down the best in town. For the coffee lovers you can’t go past Mahalia (playground out the back FTW – however located in back streets – take the car) and The Adventurous Spoon (more conveniently located in the main street).

Lastly our absolute highlight was a visit to Transmutation. A local gallery / shop of sorts that make recycled bread tags into salad bowls and other useful arty things. It’s a must visit.

This is the type of holiday park that you’ll drop on your social media and your mates will all have FOMO – so rather than be that person, why not tag them or send them this link now and make a booking together?

  • Do you have a fur baby in your family? Our chocolate Labrador Archer doesn’t get as many walks or as much attention as he used to pre-kids. That’s why we LOVE Unity park because it has a dog park for the dogs and a playground for the kids. Both are fully fenced (so you don’t need to worry about toddlers running away) and it’s the perfect whole family outing – dad with the dog and mum with the kids (or vice versa). Just make sure you don’t take your dog into the kids playground area. Sheltered picnic tables are within the playground area, and there’s a BBQ just outside the fence. The kids can enjoy plenty of equipment and space to move, and so much lush green grass to run around on or have a picnic. You’ll also find a lake and ducks to feed, and it’s a great bike riding spot. This is definitely a park we’ll be visiting more often to make sure our 5 year dog and 3 year old daughter get a chance to expel their energy!
