I can highly recommend staying here in Kimba as it is a great place to stop for a few nights to check out the local tourist attractions. Traveling can be expensive what with the costs of fuel, caravan parks that charge too much and of course we all need to eat. Therefore most travelers look for places that help make their travel less expensive by supplying free overnight stop overs for them.
If that is what you need then Kimba is a very smart town. They have 3 overnight spots for the tired travelers to camp overnight. This is great because most people will return the favor by buying their fuel and groceries in towns that help their budget.
Kimba is halfway across Australia, so no matter which way you go this is the place where you know you have traveled a long way and still have a long way to go to get to the other side. It is also the gateway to the Gawler Ranges. It is a beautiful area to explore and has approximately 1050 residents that have decided to make their home here.
