Euroa  Victoria

    •   Show me: a map of Euroa

Euroa is at the centre of a rich agricultural and wool-growing district 150km north-west of Melbourne on the Hume Highway between Benalla and Seymour Downs.

It is a substantial town of 2700 people proud of the district's high reputation as a producer of fine wool and saddled with a close and bloody connection with Australia's most notorious and strangely romanticised bushranger, Ned Kelly.

Euroa and Ned Kelly were inextricably linked on December 9, 1878 when the desperado and his gang baled up 22 hostages at nearby Faithfull Creek Station before heading into town to hold up the National Bank and making off with 2200 pounds.

Before holding up the station and bank, the 22-year-old Kelly and his younger brother, Dan, holed up in the Wombat Ranges to the south-east of Euroa where Ned confronted and killed three police constables.

The homestead at Faithful Creek was destroyed in the 1939 bush fires although the charred remains of the home remain.

Euroa hosts the Golden Shears International Shearing Championships as part of the Wool Week Festival and Agricultural Show in October. Just north of the town is the Seven Creeks Run Woolshed where you can watch sheepdog and shearing demonstrations.
