Robson, who turned 16 last week, took just 36 minutes to defeat Australia’s Belinda Woolcock 6-0 6-1.
Last year, Robson reached the final of the tournament at Melbourne Park when she was beaten by Russia’s Ksenia Pervak in straight sets.
Robson will meet 11th seed Yalia Putintseva in the second round after the Russian defeated Vivien Juhaszova 6-2 6-3.
In the boys’ draw, Tom Allen took 11th seed Renzo Oliver to three sets before losing 6-2 5-7 6-1.
