Want to make a weekend of it? Taralga is a quaint little village, known for its beautiful stone architecture. There are many places to stay to suit every budget, whether you are visiting with a family or traveling alone. Taralga boasts cosy cafes, two hotels, a traditional general store and specialty shops.

The Taralga Museum is a must for all who visit. There are artefacts from the agricultural industry as well as a colonial cottage decorated as if lived in by a pioneering family. The Nissen Hut is full of interesting memorabilia from local men and women who have served and there are many more fascinating buildings and antique pieces.

The Taralga Lions Markets are on over the long weekend. So you can pick up some local produce, or find that special locally made product.
