Euston belongs to the traditional lands of the Tati Tati Aboriginal people.
At the 2006 census, Euston had a population of 462 people. Until the irrigation development at Robinvale Euston was the main town in the area. A Post Office opened on 1 May 1852. It closed in 1853, then reopened in 1856.
In 1876 the settlement at Euston was described in the following terms:
Euston is a crossing-place for sheep and cattle. There is a Custom-house officer here, though I should judge that his avocations were not of an extremely onerous nature, and the township also possesses a post and telegraph office. If the building can be taken as a type of the township, Euston has not a long life before it. The walls appear as if rent apart by an earthquake. The hotels and about a dozen houses constitute the remainder of the township.
Euston has the Euston Sports and Recreation Club and the Euston Pub.
