The Tambo Heritage Precinct located on the eastern entrance of Tambo is where a portion of Tambo's history can be viewed. The buildings were originally Tambo's Post and Telegraph Office, and Tambo played a vital role in the early telegraph system linking the north of Australia with the south.

The building now known as Mulhern House was the first Post and Telegraph Office built by the government in 1876 on the site of the current Post Office. This was moved by bullock team with the aid of logs in 1904 to make way for the new Post Office. The building now houses a mix of displays portraying the history and lifestyle of Tambo. There is also an interactive DVD so you can learn more about this small town.

The smaller building, which was originally an addition on the Post and Telegraph Office in 1885, now houses the Post and Telegraph artefacts including the Morse code, which you can see in operation.

The Totally Tambo Heritage Group mans the buildings on a volunteer basis and are happy to share their knowledge of Tambo's history. There is a small range of locally made arts and crafts available for purchase at the Centre.
