Biography/History

Steve and Linda Robinson founded Robinson’s Family Circus in New Zealand in 1975, with its beginning in agricultural shows and shopping centres. Steve Robinson had worked with Perry Bros Circus before founding Robinsons' Family Circus. In 1989 Robinson Family Circus and Perry Bros Circus combined their shows in a short-lived tour of the QLD/NSW coast. The circus name was changed to Robinson Circus/Robinson International circus in the 90's. The original Robinson Circus closed down in 1997. Steve Robinson’s son, Mark and his wife, Karlene, toured a new small scale Robinson Family Circus on the agricultural show circuit, until the end of 2013.
