Australia Robe Obelisk
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
Robe, on the Limestone Coast, is one of the oldest towns in South Australia. A stone pillar - the Cape Dombey Obelisk, was erected in 1852 to assist ships and their navigators to the safe entrance into Guichen Bay. The obelisk is a famous landmark and is of special local historical significance. It sits atop a rugged coastline, which is rapidly eroding due to the force of the elements. The waters south of Robe meet the Southern Ocean which is notoriously known to have some of the strongest winds and largest waves on the planet. The local council have explored all options for saving the obelisk, but unfortunately, they have admitted defeat and announced that the local icon cannot be saved. Nature's force will win and the obelisk will eventually fall into the sea.
