Earth : Oceania : Australia : New South Wales : Southern Highlands (New South Wales) : Robertson
Robertson is a small town in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.
Robertson is a small township located in the Capital Country of New South Whales. At high points, the town boasts spectacular views of the land and ocean. A high annual rainfall and a rich red soil has made this town one of the prime potato growing locations in Australia.
Visitors can also see the abstract monument which, while unmarked, is assumed to be the "big potato". The rich red soil of the land is unique to the location and is a reminder of the dense rain forest which once covered the area. The land was cleared by settlers to make space for housing, business and farming.
By car via the Illawarra Highway (which connects to the Hume and the Princes Highways). When you reach the top of the Macquarie Pass you are at Robertson. The pie shop is on the highway. The rest of the town is a short drive away.
The 3801 Cockatoo Run  heads up the range to Robertson on Sundays.
Robertson is a small town, and the village can easily be seen by foot.
Robertson itself is immediately surrounded by agricultural land. The movie Babe was filmed here, and the farms (somewhat unsurprisingly) look much like the set of the movie. The flies walking in the area during summer.
If you have a car, the surrounding national parks along the range are well worth visiting. Fitroy Falls is an easy trip out of town. The rest of the Southern Highlands is only 30 minutes away.
