At the foot of the magnificent Tallarook Ranges, Tallarook is a picturesque country town and the starting point of the Great Victorian Rail Trail.
History and Heritage
The land was once central to the territories of the Goulburn Aboriginal tribes, in whose language, Tallarook means ‘call of the wattle birds’.
Today you can see the St Josephs' Catholic Church and St Stephen's Anglican church on Main Road, both of which are of historical significance to the town.

Be sure to visit the Tallarook Farmer's market, which is held on the first Sunday of every month (except January) and is a popular event for the township. The market provides delicious fresh local produce and food in a relaxed country setting.
