Roora Reserve Walking Trail
The Roora Reserve Nature Trail is on the outskirts of Kimba and is approximately a six kilometre return walk. The trail features several sculptures made out of recycled steel so keep your eye out for various native animals including an echidna, emu, wombat and more. The sculptures are the artistic work of Ty Manning and he was commissioned by the District Council of Kimba Tourism Committee to undertake the work. The trail also features informative signs providing information on key features along the trail for example the "Chapple" which housed dam construction workers.
The walking trail consists of two kilometres of easy walking through the old Roora Water Reserve, with the third kilometre gradually rising as you reach the Whites Knob Lookout. Whites Knob is an ironstone conglomerate outcrop formation on the north western outskirts of Kimba, providing a delightful vantage point to view the surrounding countryside in any direction. A directional dial will help you to identify prominent landmarks up to 50 kilometres away. A sculpture of Edward John Eyre and his Aboriginal tracker who surveyed the area feature at the top of the lookout. A Telecommunication Tower is also situated in the area and is approximately 86 metres high.
