Driftwood House, a timber beach house in soft tones of grey, white and mushroom is perched above native coastal vegetation with lovely water views of Foxes Lake. Filled with natural light and pale timber throughout, it has been styled with a beach chic feel that is fresh and relaxed. Just 75 steps to the secluded little Foxes Beach where you can swim or gather shells and driftwood after storm surges, it's ideally positioned for a carefree getaway on the coast. Take a long refreshing walks, go birdwatching or maybe fish in the nearby freashwater estuary. A light breakfast hamper consisting of tea, coffee, bread and gourmet jams for your first morning and a complimentary bottle of local wine is provided.
Robe has a rich seafaring history with over 84 historic sites and old settlers buildings such as the Customs House, a limestone building with striking brick quoins; the ruins of the old gaol, and a 12 meter Obelisk - a stone pillar on the cape that could be seen 20 km out to see which saved many lives by averting shipwrecks and guide floundering ships to a safe haven by firing rockets overhead. A Chinese Monument honours 17,500 Chinese who landed here and walked overland 400km to the goldfields, many never to return home. There are stunning cliff walks, and rugged coastline to explore. The more adventurous could try deep sea fishing with the local fleet, or an off-road experience in Little Dip National Park. The prolific birdlife of the region attracts birdwatchers as there are over 100 species of local and migratory birds attracted to the wetlands and beaches. If you want to roam the region you can head due east to the Coonawarra wine region, then south to Mt Gambier, where you can visit the Blue Lake, a stunning aquatic phenomenon that changes from a steel grey colour in the cooler months to a vibrant cobalt blue in the summer. The volcanic region of Mt Gambier has many caves to explore and spectacular sinkholes to see, like the Umpherston Sinkhole, all draped in green finery where possums emerge from the shadows to roam at dusk, drawn to the gardens to feed.
