Robertstown is located in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia. Robertson is a small farming town in the western division of the Goyder Shire
in South Australia mid-north tourist region. Pioneer settlers, many of them
German migrants, were dependent on a Koonnga storekeeper named John Roberts
for their supplies. Initially, Roberts traded from a wagon before opening
a shop and post office in the village. Mail was franked 'Robertson Town,'
and the name eventually evolved as Robertson.
Although the area was built largely on the wealth generated from rich copper lodes, it is now a pacesetter in eco-tourism. And Robertstown is regarded as the perfect stepping off point for a trek through country characterised by virgin rural landscapes ranging from gently rolling hills and valleys, to breath-taking gorges and lagoons. It is a country which can be explored by foot or four-wheel drive vehicles.
On the track you may see Australia’s rarest lizard, the pygmy blue-tongue. Along the way, you will be well fed and watered in restaurants, cafes and country pubs, while a chain of galleries and craft workshops will broaden and enrich the mid-north experience
