Kimba and the
Roora Walking Trail


Kimba is around halfway between Melbourne and Perth so the sign says.  It's a great place to stop on the way over, from either direction.  The local pub has good meals and the local sports area is a great, 5 star, free camp area, then you have the amazing silo art and for me the Roora Walking Trail.  The trail start just across the road from the free camp and passes through good bush country.  Highlights of the trail include the many sculptures along the way with short loops, like Bird Walk Way and Axe Tree Way, which you can use to extend or shorten you walk.  Eventually the trail goes uphill to the White's Knob Scenic Lookout and the wonderful Edward John Eyre Statues.  Here you return via the small caves area and back down the trail leading up. 

Always take water with you!
