Roberts Creek is sometimes affectionately referred to as "The Independent Nation of Roberts Creek". This tightly knit community lies between the towns of Gibsons and Sechelt, with beaches on Georgia Strait. Tall trees and mature gardens surround the small town centre, where you'll find the well-known Gumboot Cafe and Restaurant, a general store, a small group of unique shops, and the Inside Passage School of Fine Cabinetmaking. The Gumboot Restaurant is a child-friendly place and makes a great lunch stop on a drive North to Sechelt.

A few minutes downhill walk (or roll) from the town centre brings you to a wheelchair accessible pier, and the Roberts Creek Mandala, which is recreated each year as a community collaborative effort.

After lunch, hop in the car for a short drive across the highway to visit Cliff Gilker Park, to enjoy lovely creekside walking trails in the forest and unexpected carved figures in the trees. Nearby Roberts Creek Provincial Park offers drive-in camping and a day use area.
