Kambalda - WA RVFT

Kambalda is located 616 kilometres east of Perth, and is split between two townsites four kilometres apart; Kimbalda West and Kimbalda East. The town is situated on the edge of the giant salt lake, Lake Lefroy, a 40 kilometre salt pan that is rarely filled with water. Kambalda was founded in 1897 during the gold boom, but was completely deserted by 1908. The town was later revived in the 1960s, with the construction of Australia’s first nickel mine, for which the town is now known.

Kambalda has a well-established service centre, with modern facilities and extended shopping hours. Free parking for up to 24 hours is available on Barnes Drive, Kambalda West. A dump point, potable water and bins are provided, and pets on a lead are permitted.

Visitors can experience panoramic views of Lake Lefroy or enjoy the local flora and fauna on the Red Hill Walking Trail to the lookout.
