Description

Artesian water opened up the Outback and the unique town of Eulo (population 48) was settled because of its position on the stock route which was on the banks of one of the best water holes on the pristine Paroo River. A memorable time can be had swimming, fishing, yabbying and camping under the stars on the river banks. Toilets are situated behind the Hall in the main street.

If totally secluded camping is your thing, head west across the river and turn left after 900 metres. This sign posted track will take you to the absolute peace and tranquillity of the Billabong. Teeming with water birds the Billabong offers many secluded camping spots on the water's edge. Of course when camping in and around Eulo, we do ask you leave nothing behind but your foot prints.

Set amidst the mulga, Eulo is a delightful green haven for travellers. Following drought, recent record rainfall has once again transformed this beef, wool and honey producing area into a carpet of native grasses and herbages. In the spring, seasonal conditions considered, the surrounding bush comes alive with wildflowers.

Other Information

General Comments

Eulo is a haven for bird watchers with more than 180 species. Major Mitchell Cockatoos, Mulga Parrots, Malee Ringnecks, Bourke's Parrots and the rare Halls Babbler to name but a few.

Approximately nine kilometres out of town heading west towards Thargomindah are the Eulo Mud Springs. These springs are unique to this area and are a natural vent to the Great Artesian Basin.

Visit the Palm Grove Date Farm and Winery shop and taste some locally produced date wine, sticky date liqueur and a range of date and fig delights. While you're there you may wish to book in for a private mud bath under the stars.

The little shop that's got the lot, Eulo's general store offers a full range of fruit and vegetables, groceries, fuel, local opals, Paroo honey and locally produced moisturizers and creams.

Directly opposite the general store, the Paroo Patch offers a range of high quality polo tops, hand bags and leather goods all hand made on the premises.

A two minute stroll from the general store is the Bilby Burrow, offering unique local products including opals, jewellery, giftware, souvenirs, aboriginal paintings and artefacts.

Camping and accommodation is also available at the Eulo Queen Hotel. The hotel has clean amenities, two cabins and shearers quarters rooms are also available. So call in, stay a couple of nights and enjoy a cold drink at the bar or on the verandah.

Eulo is the last 'big town' en route to the 360,000 acre Currawinya National Park incorporating Lake Numalla (fresh) and Lake Wyara (salt), a pleasant day trip from Eulo.

Locals look forward to seeing you in Eulo.
