Kimba

We took the scenic route from Yakka to Kimba with an overnight stop on a free bush camp on the way. Kimba is the halfway point driving east/west across the bottom of Australia with a huge statue of a galah to mark the spot. A bit touristy and a bit tacky but you just have to get a photo. Much better are the massive ugly concrete grain silos which are the feature of many Australian rural towns. Quite a few have murals painted on them which is called Silo Art and as you can imagine is quite an undertaking but is another great example of outback Australian tourism. The silo art we photographed supposedly took 26 days and 200 litres of paint to complete.

Streaky Bay was our next stop and the receptionist at the campsite still had our vehicle registration number in her records from when we were last here exactly 9 years ago. We parked in the same spot on the beach as we did before.
