Hitting the Limestone Coast with kids? Namely ROBE in the states South East? You will not find a better family meal, or a better pizza than The Project Robe. Let’s go one further, its a pretty hard place to beat, you probably won’t find a prettier seaside town to make holiday memories in with your kids than here. Robe has it all, great pizza included, but we have know about this place for a while now.

The Project at Robe is hands down our best pick for eating out in this beautiful little corner of South Australia. They are open for lunch and dinner daily, and in the few years that we have been visiting these guys – they only keep getting better and better. Pretty sure any one who has spent any amount of time in Robe will tell you, it’s a must visit.

Kids are fussy right. All of them in the KiA team. We have now sent three of our Kids in Adelaide Families to this little gem and it’s come up trumps every.single.time with the kids.

What we loved about The Project is the vibe (to quote the castle who made ‘the vibe’ cool way before it became a 2021 phrase). It’s casual enough here that you feel happy and welcome taking 3 knackered kids for a pizza after 4hrs in the car, but it is funky enough also that the parents will enjoy the art work, music and great nosh. A really good mix. Not that I am an art critic, but it looked good to my (very) untrained eye.

We get it, good vibes and atmosphere mean zilch if the food doesn’t cut it. Thankfully The Project just nails it. Great pizza and the kids loved their meals Can we just add, the kids meals were VERY generously sized – check the photo.

We enjoyed a couple of local beers and wines (thanks Cape Jaffa) but the real hidden gem at this place is the huge outdoor eating area out back. Imagine a balmy summers night out here in the warm salty air? There’s even a sand pit and play area for the kids and of course colouring in and pencils regardless where you sit. (I’ll just throw in here in my four years of reviewing for Kids in Adelaide this is the first time we have ever been presented with FRESHLY SHARPENED pencils – it’s the little things.)

What else do you want besides great food, a great location on Main Street and unreal service from Antony and the team – who seemingly have this bustling hospitality gig well and truly mastered.

We stayed at Robe Discovery Park – who we currently have a great discount with 15% off + kids stay free until June 2022, get on that HERE

  • We saw some photos of Tempest before we arrived so expectations were high. What we didn’t expect was to be absolutely blown away by this brilliant place. It was so good, that one of my kids refused to leave. She will now greet future guests on their arrival. Located in prime position overlooking the harbour at Robe, a mere 2 min drive from main street (or a 10 minute walk…but you know how hard it is to walk home after pizza right?), it is really hard for my basic grasp of the English language to do it justice. It boasts 3 huge bedrooms, 2 with king sized beds (have you ever tried to tell a 14yo girl who had a king sized bed that she had to leave? It is easier to get a toddler to eat vegetables or me to do ironing) and an open plan living room/kitchen with wide ranging views onto the harbour. That sounds all well and good, but without sounding like a real estate agent on The Block, this place is just the bees knees (Probably not a legit real estate agent phrase) My kids just loved this place. It has all the comforts of…

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…

  • If you are headed to Robe with the kids (a four hour drive from Adelaide and a cracking spot to holiday on the coast) you can not, not visit this place. Especially with the kids. Mind blown, new salad bowl made out of melted down bread tags purchased. Transmutation is a little recycling gallery and shop. Very crafty and very passionate about their work - with the added bonus, they support the very worthy charity 'Wheelchairs for Kids', donating a part of their profits to buying wheelchairs. Our school actually collect bread tags for this cause (maybe yours does too? or could?) and it was pretty epic to see an end result. THIS is where our big tubs of plastic bag clips end up, ah huh! Gee, it really hit home for the kids and watching them join the dots was phenomenal. Bread tags are melted down (well warmed and moulded really) on site and made into bright arty salad bowls and doorknobs, among other things. The shop (we thought it was more like a gallery really) also display and sell all kinds of recycled and upcycled practical and unexpected products, from fish nets turned into bathers and boardies, to…
