District Council of Kimba

Kimba was a pioneering town, established in 1915 is now one of the major wheat producing areas in South Australia.

The 1300-strong community is built almost exactly halfway across Australia on the famous Eyre Highway.

For the weary traveller it is the perfect place to stop and explore – and to pose for a photograph with the sign marking the half-way point across the continent.

You will find more than just a sign to keep you entertained in Kimba though.

With cool parks and picnic areas dotted across the town, you’ll find no shortage of places to sit back and relax.

But if you’d rather explore, then there’s plenty more to see.

The John Eyre Sculptures, named in honour of the same John Eyre who gave his name to the highway, provide a rustic and quirky monument to a very important Australia.

Just sitting back and trying to spot some of the 140 different species of bird in the region might be more your speed and there’ll be no trouble finding somewhere to spot the beautiful flora and fauna, with nature walks and reserves showing off the gateway to the Gawler Ranges.
Or perhaps you’d enjoy a stroll through the township itself to look at the various artistic murals on display.

The town’s local history walk will give you the perfect opportunity to learn about the hardy personalities who first settled the area, and if you’re lucky you might even get chatting with some of the friendly local personalities who make Kimba such a special place today.
