Taralga today is a small quiet town with charm, character and a warm welcome. It is one of those places you can relax and unwind while taking in the historical past of the place with a leisurely walk.
Time your visit for the 2nd Sunday of the month and be treated to the colour and atmosphere of a true country market and also visit the charming Taralga Historical Society museum. The museum is housed in a former Methodist Church which in itself is worth a look.
The museum is open most Sunday afternoons from 1pm till 4pm (depending on volunteers) and long weekends in June and October. The Taralga Museum also welcomes inquiries from groups and coach companies on other occasions.
