Things To Do
EROMANGA LIVING HISTORY CENTRE
Visit the Eromanga Living History Centre which incorporates a Museum and Object Theatre and browse through hundreds of historic photos & stories of the surrounding area. View a self operated film in the Theatre Room. Some of the many topics covered are oil exploration, early pastoral pioneers, opal mining and information regarding the discovery near Eromanga of Australia’s largest dinosaurs. The Centre also has a Photo display that automatically shows images from the 1860's to present day, as a slide show. The Centre is unmanned, so collect the key from the Eromanga Royal Hotel. Adjoining the Museum is a Park with picnic tables, covered playground and a stunning Mining Memorial, inlaid with opal in memory to the Opal Opolis days of Eromanga.
EROMANGA ROYAL HOTEL
Make sure you call in for a cold drink and a yarn at the historic Eromanga Royal Hotel which was once a staging post for Cobb & Co coaches. The Hotel is well over a century old and was built of locally made bricks. Back in the heydays, it was one of three hotels in Eromanga. The Royal is probably one of the longest continually operating hotels in the outback, as its licence has carried through since it was built in 1885. Have a browse through the Opal Room at the Hotel that has a selection of beautiful opals for sale. The Hotel has snacks available during the day and great home cooked meals at night. Accommodation also available. Come along and join the locals at the Eromanga Community BBQ held every Saturday night at the Royal Hotel with proceeds going to Royal Flying Doctor and local community groups.
