Kimba  South Australia

When you pull into the Eyre Highway town of Kimba you’re at the halfway point in the east-west crossing of Australia - a perfect reason to take a break and absorb some of the local history and sights.

You can also introduce yourself to some of the local wildlife in the regional Gawler Ranges parks and reserves, where the landscape remains much as it was when explorer Edward Eyre led the first expeditions into this part of the Eyre Peninsula in 1839.

The district museum guards some amazing old tools and living exhibits, including a superb example of a stone, pine and pug cottage.

More than 140 species of birds - including emu, wedge tail eagle, cockatoos and galahs - nest in the surroundings parks which are also havens for many reptiles, kangaroos and hairy-nosed wombats.

You can get an overview of the region from Whites Knob Lookout to the north of town. And further north lie the Gawler Ranges, the 470m divide between the Eyre Peninsula and the arid deserts of central Australia. The roads into the ranges aren't exactly tarred carpets, but they do open up country rich in fauna and flora including kangaroos and euros and wildflowers, all of which bow to the magnificent Sturt Desert pea.
