Eulo - mud baths, honey,bilbys and megafauna
The town of Eulo is situated on the Bulloo Developmental Road (Adventure Way) 70 km west of Cunnamulla and has a population of about 70 people.

The township was originally built close to the Paroo River but as floods almost wiped out the entire town, building began on higher ground where Eulo now stands.

Like most bush towns it has an interesting history. The most notable character was Isabel Robinson - the Eulo Queen.

She was born in 1849 on the isle of Mauritius and migrated to Australia as a teenager, she arrived in Cunnamulla in 1878 and shortly afterwards moved to Eulo with her husband.

The town's only pub carries her name and is where visitors can learn about her life and the early history of the town.

The rural land surrounding Eulo is predominantly used for sheep and cattle grazing, however, the area is well known for its rich flavoursome honey obtained from the blossom of the local native Yapunyah tree.

Honey, along with other natural products made from bees wax, are produced at Eulo for the local and the national market.

Eulo has many attractions, such as the Lizard Lounge picnic area, the Bilby Burrow - art and craft gallery, a megafauna display of the locally found Diproton, artesian mud baths and mud springs just west of the town.

Eulo is just 67 km west of Cunnamulla along a bitumen sealed road. It is a comfortable day trip from Cunnamulla. There is a choice of accommodation in Eulo from powered sites, cabins. From Eulo you are in a position to enjoy day trips to Yowah, and 'Currawinya' National Park.
