Buckleboo is a wheat farming community 35 km northwest of Kimba, on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula.

Buckleboo is home to ‘Buckleboo Park’ which consists of 6 tennis courts and an oval for Australian Rules Football and Cricket. Nicknamed the Club in the Scrub many have played and savoured their time at Buckleboo.

Buckleboo is the railhead for a narrow gauge railway to haul grain via Kimba and Cummins to Port Lincoln for export. It was proclaimed in 1825 and named after the adjacent pastoral run.

Buckleboo is in the District Council of Kimba local government area, the South Australian House of Assembly electoral district of Flinders and the Australian House of Representatives Division of Grey.
