Euroa: High Country - Distance from CBD 164 km
The name ‘Euroa’ comes from the Aboriginal word meaning ‘joyful’ in the old local dialect, and you are sure to feel just this when you stop in at this beautiful township, located at the foot of the Strathbogie Ranges. Euroa has a history of brushes with fame – Ned Kelly held up the National Bank in town in 1878, and legendary Aussie cricketer Merv Hughes was born there. Euroa is the perfect base from which to explore the natural beauty of the Ranges and for the daredevils among us, is well-known for its skydiving facilities.
