Eidsvold

Eidsvold

Less than three hours west of Bundaberg, Eidsvold was first settled in 1848 and the discovery of gold in 1887 made the town a populous centre for miners. These days the town boasts a strong cattle trade and visitors can see live cattle auctions every second Wednesday, a must-do outback experience for the family. Visit the RM Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre. Purpose built to honour legend RM Williams, the centre showcases his skills and achievements, and brings to life his passion for traditional bush life. Learn something new about the pioneer settlers from Norway, the Archer Brothers, at the Archer Homestead or check out Alice Maslen’s Hitching Rail in the main street where she would tie her horse when in town.
