Description

Take the road less travelled and you will end up in the peaceful Tara Region, as far from city life as you can imagine. Accessed off the main Moonie and Warrego Highways, Tara is literally 'off the beaten track' and that's just how the locals like it.

If you are hankering to totally escape the stress of the city, you'll find life in Tara happens at a relaxed pace and travellers are always welcome to stay a while. When you arrive in town, drop into the Tara Information Centre to chat to a local about what to see and do. Enjoy the Lagoon Parklands featuring Settlers Park and the Walk of Remembrance Garden. The Lagoon offers a cool respite and it serves as the local fitness precinct complete with outdoor gym. You can picnic by the water's edge, fish, cycle or take the interpretive walk to see an abundance of birdlife.

Native flora and fauna displays are abundant throughout the Shire, and among these you can spot some rare species. The eastern third of the Shire also supports Queensland's best examples of ironbark, spotted gum and cypress pine trees.

Tara Commercial Hotel is home to several paintings by framed artist Hugh Sawrey that he painted while passing through in the 60s. And don't miss the chance to meet and see the work of Barbara Geisel, an internationally acclaimed wool artist and local resident.
