EUSTON

Euston is a NSW pass through town when traveling the Murray River region and towns. Euston is a very small town that qualifies for the Bustout review. The area is rich in citrus and rural orchards and farm. Robinvale, the big brother of a town is over the river in Victoria. Robinvale is able to provide any back-up service Euston may not provide.

In 1876 the settlement at Euston was described in the following terms:

Euston is a crossing-place for sheep and cattle. There is a Custom-house officer here, though I should judge that his avocations were not of an extremely onerous nature, and the township also possesses a post and telegraph office. If the building can be taken as a type of the township, Euston has not a long life before it. The walls appear as if rent apart by an earthquake. The hotels and about a dozen houses constitute the remainder of the township.

Euston and Robinvale are home to a large Italian population from the southern province of Calabria in Italy.

Euston is a gateway to the Murray River and Sunraysia district, known for its fishing, including the Murray cod and other native species.

The Euston War Memorial is one back off the main street. A strange location.

Euston has only the one church.

The Euston Hotel has a low profile in the main street. The local Club being the main entertainment venue.

If the timing is right a stop off for refreshment may tempt the traveler.
