The girlfriend of an Australian surfer murdered in Mexico received a heart-rending voicemail just before before he was shot dead, she has revealed.

Callum Robinson, 33, was with his brother Jake and friend, Jack Carter Rhoad, on a surfing trip when they were attacked near the town of Ensenada.

A Mexican man has been charged over their disappearance.

Police believe the victims were killed while trying to thwart robbers trying to steal their pick-up truck.

On Instagram, Callum's girlfriend Emily Horwath shared the last voicemail he left her, which began with the words, "happy Tuesday! Good morning".

"It's 11:11 and I'm just thinking about you. Just wanted to drop you a quick message and say hello," Callum said. "Hope you're having a phenomenal start to your day."

"I'm sensing a big grin on your face for some reason today," he added. "I hope you're full of positivity and smiles."

Ms Horwath captioned the Instagram story with the words "I will play this on repeat".

The bodies of the Robinson brothers and Mr Rhoad were found six days after they vanished 27 April, each with a gunshot wound to the head, according to Mexican authorities.

A suspect appeared in court on kidnapping charges on Wednesday. Mexican authorities have said murder charges will also be filed in the case.

Another man and a woman caught with drugs have been detained for their suspected involvement.

Debra Robinson, the mother of the two Australians, said in a tribute: “They were young men enjoying their passion of surfing together.

“Live bigger, shine brighter, and love harder in their memory.”
