There is a great walking trail from the marina then along the coast, past the obelisk to the lighthouse.

Good walk not far out of town

Worth a visit, only 10 minutes out of town, great views and a lot of history with the ruins of the old goal.

Robe Obelisk

This is such a cool and unique structure... looks like something straight out of a Sci-Fi movie. You must see it!

The obelisk is only a short walk out of the centre of town and you can easily drive to it as well with plenty of room in the carpark for a van as well.

There is a fence that stops you getting right to the base of it as the cliffs are to dangerous but you can still get some great shots.

Old historic obelisk
May 2021 • Couples
Unfortunately you can only walk to the obelisk as road is now closed for cars. Parking is near the old gaol. There is a walking track to the new lighthouse from the carpark. Good photos of the obelisk can be taken along the way. Track is a bit up and down, not suitable for anybody with mobility problems or wheelchairs, though can go a short way before it is a bit difficult. The old gaol when walls were higher was where in the mid 50's the town celebrated guy fawkes night.

We walked here from our accommodation, the was is easy and the view from the obelisk is very good. Reading the plaque about the history of the obelisk is very interesting.

Went to the Gaol then walked over to the Obelisk. The walking trails make for a nice walk and some gorgeous photos.

Worth a stroll

The obelisk features on so much Robe merch you just have to go see it. Have a walk look out from the look outs. Also check out the Gaol while you're there.

Visit it while you can

Just past the Old Gaol ruins it is an easy short walk to the fence which stops progress to the obelisk itself. The obelisk sits precariously on a wave and windswept coastline being battered and worn by the elements. The sign at the fence gives the history of this historical icon. Enjoy looking at the vegetation and other sites on your walk.

Great walk.

The obelisk is in real danger of falling into the ocean. You can no longer get close to the obelisk it is all fenced off. Beautiful area.
