Kimba is famous for its Big Galah, lovely sandstone buildings and as the birthplace of “Cats” midfielder, Corey Enright. Can’t ask much more of a town of around 800 people. Oh, did I mention that you can buy a pair of jeans for $2, a collarless shirt for $1, a paperback mystery novel for 10c, home-grown lemons for 5c each or a like-new dressing gown (Giovanni) for $2? You can get all this and more from the Uniting Church Op Shop.
We left Kimba on Tuesday morning and on the way out of town, we visited the Big Galah. I’m not sure what it is about us Aussies that creates ‘Big Things’ around the country… maybe our Big Skies, Big Spaces, Big Coastlines etc have something to do with it.
