Lake Butler Boat Haven, Robe, South Australia

Robe has been a fisherman’s mecca since the early days of settlement. On my recent visit I came across the memorial that has been erected honoring those who have been lost at sea pursuing either their passion for fishing, or while trying to make a living from the sea.

The design is an interesting one. Look carefully and you will see that the memorial in shaped like the hulls of several different kinds of boats. There is a plaque explaining the significance of the different hull shapes.
