Eulo

Eulo is a small town but seems to capture the spirit and atmosphere of Queensland’s Outback. Once the bustling main centre for the opal miners, the area was chosen for settlement given its proximity to a good waterhole on the Paroo River.

At the Eulo Queen Hotel, not only the ale flows freely, but so too do the many legends surrounding the Eulo Queen. Isobel Robinson ran the hotel towards the end of the nineteenth century – virtually reining over the town and the nearby opal fields, hence her title – the Eulo Queen.

As you enter Eulo, on the right is the famous ‘Paroo Track’ which is where the world lizard racing championships are held. At the left-hand side of the track is a piece of granite with a plaque that reads: ‘Cunnamulla-Eulo Festival of Opals. ‘Destructo’, champion racing cockroach accidentally killed at this track (24 August 1980) after winning the challenge (sic) stakes against ‘Wooden Head’, champion racing lizard 1980. Unveiled 23 August 1981′.

Each winter beekeepers come to the area to allow their bees to feed on the Warrego variety of Eucalyptus found in the region. While in Eulo, try the local Yapunya honey, which the locals call the ‘Taste of the Outback’.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
