A hamlet of around 50 people that serves as a regional centre for the huge region of Australia known as the Nullarbor Plain.
Near the Great Australian Bight, its origial location was actually along the Coast and even had a telegraph station, but a plague of rabbits destroyed all the dune vegetation and the villiage was then buried by a sandstom.

According to Wikipedia, the name comes from the "Aboriginal word Yinculyer which one source gives as referring to the rising of the planet Venus"
"Eucla (31‹43ŒS 128‹53ŒE; post code: 6443) is the easternmost town in Western Australia, located on the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia"
-Wikipedia

an oxymoron.
