ROBINVALE

Robinvale is a quite remote location; a diversion from most expedient routes is required. Robinvale is also an interesting town, and its development and community makeup suggests this purpose built mining/dam/ government town. Wide streets, parks and infrastructure that exude misplaced planning. This is not so but close.

The town is named in memory of Lieutenant George Robin Cuttle, who was during air combat over France in 1918. The Post Office opened in 1924 as Bumbang, but was renamed Robinvale in August of that year.

Robinvale is known for the massive production of grapes, olives, carrots and almonds.

Robinvale is a popular camping area on the Murray. There are many attractions in Robinvale, such as the original home of Robin Cuttle, an antique museum, park, and a caravan park overlooking the Murray River. The river is home to a great array of native birds and fish such as the pelican, swan, and perch.

Robinvale and its twin town, Euston is home to an Italian population. Many of these people are 2nd and 3rd generation Australians, well integrated to the community. It also has immigrant populations of Tongans and Asian and a significant Aboriginal community.

The churches in Robinvale are all modern buildings.

The Rural Museum is located on the western edge of the town.

The Robinvale Hotel is a grand and classic pub.

The Robinvale War Memorial is located near the central park.

The town being on the shore of the Murray River could determine Robinvale as a stopover location.
