A little taste of Eudlo
A little bit about our town of Eudlo. The picture above is by local artist, Kristen Tiver Cutlack. We bought this card at the local markets which are held every three months in and around the Eudlo Town Hall - next one is on December 13. We have the photo in our profile to the right.
Our town has about 850 people living in and around it. We have a primary school, general store, coffee shop, hairdresser, tennis courts, rural fire service and a train station with a direct line to Brisbane.
We also have the Chenrezig Buddhist Institute just out of town too. The first Tibetan Buddhist Centre in the Western world and still one of the largest. Chenrezig is open to the public for teaching, meditation which has the Big Love cafe too. Visit their website at www.chenrezig.com.au to check schedules and make sure they are open before you visit.
Chenrezig is home to many Buddhist nuns and monks.
Here is a photo of the Gompa.
We also have a local Swiss Cheese Maker - Fromart - in town too.
Most people who live in Eudlo have acreage, while homes in town are average sized blocks.
We are located in the foothills of the Blackall Range half way between Palmwoods and Mooloolah. If you haven't been here before it's worth the drive and you can enjoy a coffee and a meal at Sweethearts Cafe and visit Chenrezig - they are open to the public between Wednesdays and Sundays.
As I said, our next Market Day is on the 13th of December starting at 7am - drop in and say hi!
