Taroom


Description

The township of Taroom lies on the banks of the picturesque Dawson River, 128 kilometres north of Miles. Settlers took up the land here in 1845, just one year after the area's discovery. Most of these settlers came droving flocks of sheep from the overcrowded New England and Hunter Valley districts. Today the area is focused predominately on prime range cattle and grain production.
