Robe’s most famous lighthouse isn’t a lighthouse at all it’s an Obelisk. Built in 1855 with handsome stripes to aid vision it can be seen from 20 kms away. I doubt that it will remain on the cliff forever as the jagged crumbling limestone upon which it rests is rapidly disappearing and the last time that we visited one could walk all around it. In the distance the new modern true lighthouse stands tall. Nearby there are the remains of an old goal and the tiny safe harbour for the fishing fleet of this historic South Australian town.
