As if it wasn’t already clear that life is as easy as pie up in these parts, they make sure you’re aware by putting the famous Robertson Pie Shop on the doorstep of the town – right at the junction of both highways up the hill, just in case you thought you could avoid the pie’s tractor beam. And speaking of tractors, it’s soon very clear that you’re in a rural setting up here, as the road meanders into a classic Aussie country town, complete with super-straight and wide main street and Big Potato.

Okay, so not every town has a Big Potato, but that will help give you clues as to farming heritage that this food-bowl region provides. History is also on full display – with the train line proving that those 19th century layers of railway track knew no hurdle too great.

Take time to browse some of the one-off ‘shoppes’ offering everything from fudge, cheese, pastries and soap, before sitting back in the lovingly restored Robertson Pub for grub and good times befitting this home high up on the hill – all less than an hour’s drive from Wollongong’s bustling CBD.
