Norwegian named town in the Burnett River country of central Queensland. The area was first settled in 1848 by the Scottish Archer brothers, Charles and Thomas, who migrated to Australia from Norway, to where their parents had moved in 1825. Eidsvold s halcyon days followed the discovery of gold in 1887 and the region kept producing ore for more than 60 years before it ran out. Today, the town the Archer brothers named for their parent s adopted homeland is the commercial centre for prime beef producers. The nearby Waruma Dam is a playground for swimmers, sailors and water-skiers.
