I have since found the marriage on 3.9.1906 in St. Andrews Manse, Hobart
registered no. 446
Robert SOTHERN to Robina Margaret BLEATHMAN

I have checked the tasmanian federation bdm index and the only SOTHERN showing up is the above marriage
There is a Robert SOTHERN who died in 1913 which I found doing a google search for Robert Sothern Tasmania
He died in 1913 but he was listed as 56 years old
There is no death of a Robert Sothern in 1913 or close in the victorian death indexes - no death in 1913 listed for him either in Tasmania
There are no marriages in victoria for Robina either nor in Tasmania up to 1930
I can only check deaths up to 1930 at present in tassie
It is likely that the Brighton that was referred to was the Tasmanian one and not in Victoria
Robina Margaret applied for a teaching job in tassie in 1902 which showed up as well but you may already know that
I have also checked every other state of australia for a remarriage and was going to check NZ but the site is down
Sorry not much help but someone else may be able to find something for you
