Window and Brick Detail of “Fermoy” the former Euroa Inn – Corner of Tarcombe and Gobur Streets, Euroa
“Fermoy” is a house which may be found on the corner of Tarcombe and Gobur Streets in the Victorian country town of Euroa. “Fermoy” is Euroa’s oldest building and is built from bricks made from locally sourced clay. Building of “Fermoy” commenced as early as 1857 after local publican Maurice Garrett (1832 - 1912) purchased the land to build the Euroa Inn.

“Fermoy” has been built in Victorian Georgian style, a conservative architectural style, often with unsophisticated details, especially in examples built away from the major cities of Australia. The style is typically found in Australian homesteads built from the 1840s to the 1890s. “Fermoy” features typical examples of the Victorian Georgian style such as; a simple verandah with slender and unadorned posts, a broken back roof, large paned sash windows, a simple chimney and exposed brickwork.

From 1863 to 1912 “Fermoy” was the Euroa Inn with Maurice Garrett the licencee. He held the licence for fourty-nine years with an exceptional record of not one incident being recorded against him. Benjamin Gould, a local who supported the bushranger gang of robbers the Kelly Gang, is believed to have stayed at the Euroa Inn so he could inform the Kelly Gang of the happenings in the town in the lead up to their major bank robbery in December 1878. “Fermoy” remained in the family until 2001, changing from the Euroa Inn to the “Old Euro” to the private house you see today. In 2001, “Fermoy was purchased by the Youngs, also a well established local family from Euroa.

Euroa is a small town in the Shire of Strathbogie in the north-east of Victoria, at the foot of the Strathbogie Ranges. Euroa’s claim to fame is that the National Bank was robbed by bushranger Ned Kelly and his gang in 1878. Much of the region’s wealth once came from sheep, but now is more from the breeding of horses. Euroa is a pretty little town which thrives on the tourist industry created by the legend of Ned Kelly and his gang of bushrangers, and Euroa in the Twenty-First Century has made itself into the “village by the ranges”.
