The first Diamond Rush in the Kimberley district took place in 1869 when diamonds were found in the walls of a house, and by 1873 the town had become home to 50,000 miners. Famed for its “Big Hole” – an enormous open diamond mine – Kimberly today has an attractive historic centre with an interesting collection of museums and galleries.
