Beach makes splash

Beach makes splash

Robe’s Long Beach has been listed in eighth place in a recently published list of Australia’s Top 10 beaches.

The online listing is published each year by Brad Farmer AM who describes himself as “an ambassador and beach expert”.

Not surprisingly, the Robe District Council has endorsed his ranking and shared an aerial photo on its social media page.

Last month, developers signalled their intentions to develop dozens of residential blocks at Long Beach.

Mr Farmer has written several hundred words about each of his 2024 nominations including the following remarks about Long Beach.

“For accessibility to the water, this South Australian delight on the fabulous Limestone Coast allows you to drive your 2WD car right up to the calm waters edge with its tightly packed fine sand and tidal characteristics,” Mr Farmer wrote.

“Long Beach on Guichen Bay is a gently curved wide beach, with rock reefs fringing the bay to keep waves low along the shoreline, producing wide, soft waves.

“For the elderly, infants, those with accessibility needs, waders and cautious swimmers, Long Beach is ideal to reach the beach without car parking hassles.

“Officially, the beach is a designated road with a speed of 25-40kph, so please do respect locally enforced beach safety rules.

“There is a car free section if you prefer, just follow signage.

“Other Robe beaches I’d recommend are Hoopers and Town Beach.”
