Robertstown  South Australia

Robertstown is a small farming town in the western division of the Goyder Shire in South Australia's 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 'Roberts Town', and the name eventually evolved as Robertstown.

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, bike or rugged four-wheel drive vehicles. You’ll meet many a critter on the track maybe even Australia’s rarest lizard, the pygmy blue-tongue. Along the way, too, 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.
