Euro is an abandoned town in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, located between Laverton and Mount Margaret.

The town is named after a species of kangaroo, the eastern wallaroo. The town was gazetted in 1902[1] and took the name of a nearby gold mine. The mine had been established by North Star Gold mines prior to 1900 with lots being surveyed in the townsite in 1900.
