See the appeal in all these names!!
Rowan for unisex and I honesty love on both boys and girls equally. Rowan works for both sexes. River for me is a boy's name it just suits boys and flows more naturally on a boy. As does Robin in my eyes. In my country Robyn is used for girls and Robin is used more stereotypically for boys. Robin is just so cute for a boy and whenever I think of the name I always think it's sad that this name is getting increased use for girls. I'd much prefer Robin for a boy furthermore whenever I think of Robin I think of Christopher Robin, Robin Hood, Robin Williams, and lastly the gorgeous Robin Thicke. For me Robin is all boy!! The only one which feels incredibly unisex is Rowan.
Unfortunately I don't know about about the rankings in Australia.

If I met a sibset named Rowan, River & Robin, I'd think 'awesome'.
Rowan is all boy to me. I know some like it for girls but I can't stand it. It's also become trendy for girls.
River leans masculine but I also love it for girls.
Robin is truly unisex to me however it feels a bit dated for a girl. In the US it peaked in the 60s and has been dropping ever since. Although that could make it a fresh choice now
Personally, I would choose River but Robin is a close second. Robin is more of an 'acceptable' choice due to its softness and history. There's also a sophistication about it since all of the female Robins I know are adults with white collar careers. I've never met a Robin under 30. River is very wordy, not feminine-sounding, and still has a hippie connotation. I like that about River but not everyone will.
