You’ll try everything from emu mettwurst and sensational seafood to dairy experiences and fine wine, with the participating farm gates and cellar doors offering tastings and information abound. If you’re looking for something a little more intimate try Gather Food and Wine in Robe for delicious food cooked using fresh local produce. Or for something more casual grab a coffee at The Waterfront Café, opposite the jetty at Beachport. [PLAY] Still in Robe, Long Beach is a tourist hotspot – kick back on the beach or drive along 17 kilometres of pure white sand. If you're after history there's that too, with shipwrecks and caves along the coast. If you want a bit more action there’s also plenty for the more adventurous holidaymakers, like guided mountain bike tours or a flight in a two-seater Tiger Moth plane. The beautiful Limestone Coast is all about the water, so you’ll want to check out Charlie’s Surf School in Robe. Charlie is a veteran, internationally-travelled surfer who can teach you how to hang ten with the best of them!
