Take a lovely drive through the countryside to Eudlo.

SUITABILITY
Suitable for walkers and families.

HIGHLIGHTS
This large parkland is located on the banks of Eudlo Creek and is named after the Olsen Mill, which was destroyed by fire in 2013 – a significant piece of Sunshine Coast history. The timber industry was the means of livelihood for the early settlers, who either treated or railed large quantities of timber from the Blackall Range.
The large grassed area is circled by a 500m pathway with remnant cattle holding yards located near the centre, along with a picnic shelter and park seating.
The peace and quiet of the parkland will certainly see you coming back again.

AFTERWARDS
Spent some time in the small rural village be enjoying the facilities of the Eudlo Skate Park, located opposite the local shop and post office, and adjacent to the tennis courts and railway station. The park not only provides skaters, bladders and bikers with plenty of challenges, but has a playground, picnic shelter, BBQ and amenities for the whole family to enjoy. Nestled in the countryside, this truly is a hidden gem of the Sunshine Coast.
