Last train to Robertstown
On the 12th October 1986, Steam Ranger (South Australia) used its Rx class steam locomotive 207 to haul a tourist train from Adelaide Terminal (Keswick, South Australia) to Robertstown (South Australia) - which made this steam train's trip the last to visit Robertstown.

A wombat sighted East of Robertstown
A wombat was just about to go into his burrow underneath the Morgan/Whyalla Pipeline, approximately 500 metres west of Gavin & Tracey Rodda's, which is approximately 12 Kilometres east of Robertstown.
Wombats have been seen in this there for quite some time and are in various other locations within the area.

Viking's Working Dog Service
During January 2006, the Janetzki family (James - previous Lutheran minister, now at Parkes/Forbes NSW) visited Robertstown.
They caught up with Christine Ruediger and had lunch at the Menzel's, as they had to pick up some furniture that they had in storage.
