Best time of year to visit

The population of Eromanga explodes and the town comes alive during the blockbuster which is the Eromanga Rodeo, Campdraft, Horse and Motorbike Gymkhana.
Visitors are always welcome to this little town with so much to offer.

Climate

Eromanga is located in a dry, desert zone. All deserts experience both hot and cold temperature extremes. The summers are hot and dusty, but due to the low humidity seeking a shady area can provide some respite from the heat.

Winter days are glorious. Maximum temperatures in the mid to high teens but be prepared for cold nights. Sub zero temperatures overnight are not uncommon.

Eromanga – Australia’s Dinosaur Playground

Eromanga is home to a world-class museum facility, which showcases the spectacular paleontological finds of the region. The display of bones and fossils unearthed on properties around the area is second to none.

The collection continues to grow as more and more fossils are discovered, but no trip is complete without seeing Cooper – the 95 million old titanosaur. The remains of these giants of the prehistoric world were first discovered in 2005. Cooper’s humerus was found intact, weighing an incredible 100 kg and measuring 1.5 m long!

Eromanga is also home to Australia’s largest, mainland oil producing area and has been pumping out over 1,000 barrels of crude oil a day since commencing in 1984.

Due to disputes over the geographical centre of Australia, there is no general consensus on Eromanga’s claim to be the furthest town from the sea. A sign erected at Outback Fuels claims to be the furthest service station from the sea. However, debate over the furthest town will likely continue for many years to come.
