The South Australia region
Robertstown is situated between the Clare and Barossa wine regions in South Australia's mid-north. The area is devoted to broad acre farming of wheat, barley, oats, canola and sheep and cattle. One of the world's great long distance walking trails, South Australia's 1200km Heysen Trail, which extends from Cape Jervis, on the rugged south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula to Parachilna Gorge in the Flinders Range, meanders through the region. There are no beaches nearby and the summers are hot and dry and winters cool and a little wet in a good year. Swim in the River Murray about 40 minutes away.
The area was settled by mainly German settlers in the mid 1800s. Many of the early farms failed leaving the area rich with ruins of farmhouses and old farming equipment which can be explored. While the lowlands have been cleared, the Hallelujah Hills have been left wooded and provide a home for kangaroos, emus, lizards, galahs, lorikeets, eagles and other wild-life. A herd of feral deer also roam the Hills. Local scenic attractions include the Wold's End suspension footbridge, the Burra Creek Gorge, Red Banks Conservation Park, the Heysen Trail, the Tothill Range, Burra copper mine. Robertstown is home to Lehman's General Store which still operates as it did about 100 years ago with the addition of modern refrigeration. Clare and the Barossa Valley where South Australia's renowned wines may be sampled and purchased are within easy reach.
