Robinvale is a popular camping area on the Murray. It is situated on a peninsula of land surrounded on three sides by the Murray River, making it a picturesque holiday spot. Around Robinvale are irrigated fruit and vegetable farms as well as a number of wineries. Robinvale is attractive and well-laid out, featuring wide streets and well-maintained gardens.

Villers-Bretonneux, France became a sister city to Robinvale in 1984-85 although the first contact visits were made in late 1970's including a youth exchange. The two towns are of similar size and both rely on horticulture as their principal economic activity. Robinvale is a World War II soldier settlement community.
This relationship with Villers-Bretonneaux was inspired by the death of Lieutenant Robin Cuttle MC, resident of Robinvale, killed near Villers-Bretonneux in 1918 during the First World War.
Visit the historic Robinswood Homestead that was built by the Cuttle family in 1926, as their retirement home. Today you can visit and experience a bygone era of the district in this wonderful homestead.
