Robertstown - South Australia



Weather for the Area

The district of Robertstown stretches from:
Worlds End near Burra Creek in the North
Emmaus (between Eudunda and Point Pass) in the South
Florieton and Bower in the East
Tothill Range in the West
The area is interesting geologically and geographically with varying topography, rainfall, vegetation and land use. 
The early settlers were of mainly British and German descent.
Robertstown has developed to be an independent and self-motivated community, which has worked hard for and financed many of the amenities, for a small population.

Altogether, a healthy climate, a strong community awareness and a good place to live!
