During a first-class career that spanned from 1971 to 1982, Robinson was widely recognised as the second best wicketkeeper in Australia, behind the formidable Rod Marsh and would no doubt have played more Tests had Marsh not played. Although a wicketkeeper batsman in state cricket, Robinson's three Tests were as a specialist batsman.
Robinson captained Victoria and played World Series Cricket, notably keeping wicket for the Cavaliers on the Cavalier Country Tour in 1978/79 playing 17 matches, scoring 315 runs at 22.50, with 31 catches and 8 stumpings.
Following his retirement from first-class cricket, Robinson coached Queensland before moving to Darwin, Northern Territory to play for Tracy Village Cricket Club, and was awarded the Darwin district Player of the Year award in 1993. In 2013 Robinson was appointed coach of Tracy Village.
