Robinvale is a picturesque holiday spot, situated on a peninsula of land surrounded on three sides by the Murray River. South of the town centre are large irrigated fruit and vegetable farms and vineyards.
The town centre of Robinvale is attractive and well-laid out, featuring wide streets and well-maintained gardens. Its commercial centre is primarily situated in tree-lined Perrin Street which leads to Caix Square - a central park with memorials related to the region's history.
At the corner of the Murray Valley Highway and McLennan Drive is a huge windmill which was erected in 1948 and is claimed to be the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Following McLennan Drive along the river foreshore passes beside attractive parkland and the historic Robinswood Homestead which is located in Riverside Park and was built in 1926 as the home of the town's founder. Further along the road are various picnic spots, walking tracks and scenic viewing spots.
To the south of town, off Pethard Road, is the Euston Weir and Lock 15, built to store water for irrigation. There are pleasant lawns, shelters and picnic facilities.
