Robe ... and a giant Lobster

Anita and I decided to take a few days off and head over to Robe, situated on the Limestone Coast, around 4 1/2 hours away from Adelaide. I'd never been to Robe, but I'd heard all about the gorgeous food, wine and Mahalia Coffee - well, that's good enough for me!

We rented a house that was right on Lake Fellmongery. Anita took some fantastic pics, so I'll let them tell the story ...

The back of the house we stayed at - 'Lake's Edge'
Literally the view from the loungeroom! - Lake Fellmongery
The famous Obelisk!
Anita among the ruins ... Kangaroo Inn, abandoned in the late 1800s
Pffft, bar's closed!

The Big Lobster (Larry) at Kingston, SE - Australians love oversized man-made landmarks ... Larry was impressive as a kid, and is still impressive as an adult ;)


  1. Anita's photos are fab, but what i'd really like to see is a bit of guerilla knitting up there near the Obelisk.

  2. YES!! She thinks that's a great idea - we're actually going on a road trip to Warrnambool in September, stopping by at Robe on the way ... maybe we can do a few 'bombs' :P There's a fence in front of the obelisk that is just begging for some brightening up ...
