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 tarpaulins reengineered into hats and boots.

Add it to your Limestone Coast with Kids itinerary, you will not be disappointed.

Open Thursday to Sunday 10am to 5pm

  • 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…

  • 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…
