Euroa is an historic and heritage centre that determines that to get the best out of this great heritage town an extended stay over is essential. What becomes quickly apparent to the visitor is the wealth that once must have been generated is well and truly on display.
One of Euroa's claim to fame is that the bank was robbed by Ned Kelly in 1878. Much of the region's wealth once came from sheep but now it comes from horse studs.
Euroa contains several retirement villages, one high school, and two primary schools (one Catholic).
A by-pass was constructed around Euroa about 15 years ago and since then Euroa has been a quiet town with little growth or business potential. It is, however, a popular stop on any long drive along the Hume for purposes of food, fuel, and parks.
