Nestled at the foot of the magnificent Tallarook Ranges, the quiet township of Tallarook has its history linked with the expanding railway network.
The town is on the northern slopes of the Great Dividing Range, on land that was once central to the territories of the Goulburn Aboriginal tribes, in whose language, Tallarook means ‘call of the wattle birds’.
Today Tallarook supports abundant wildlife and farming properties. The local vineyards are gaining an international reputation and provide the perfect place to unwind and explore.
The town is known in Australia for the colloquialism, “Things are crook in Tallarook”, believed to date to the Great Depression and unemployed travellers seeking work.
