The Village of Robertson sits above Macquarie Pass and the Illawarra Escarpment. As such, it is very different from the rest of the Wingecarribee Shire. Known locally as the “Green Heart of the Highlands”, it is ideally situated at the intersection of three major regions, giving residents and visitors alike convenient access to the coastal areas of the Shoalhaven, the national parks of the Illawarra, and the shops, restaurants and amenities of inland towns such as Bowral, Moss Vale and Berrima. Robertson, beautiful at any time of year, is a great place to live and play, with national parks and waterfalls to walk and ride through and, lovely wedding venues, charming restaurants and shops, a variety of accommodation options, a thriving art community, a friendly and unpretentious "working village" atmosphere and events all year round to keep grown-ups and kids alike entertained.
At the 2016 Census the population of the Locality of Robertson was 1,863.
