Culture and History
Both Kingston SE and Robe have a rich maritime history. Kingston was founded in 1851 and by 1865, was declared as a safe harbour for wheat, wool and ships. The town began to grow and by the early 1870’s, it was a bustling seaport and thriving with hotels, banks, churches and shops.
Robe became one of southern Australia’s busiest ports by 1859, being one of the primary trading points for wool between Australia and Europe. In the 1900’s it became a major commercial fishing port known for exporting Southern Rock Lobster to the rest of the world.
