Tarrawingee located off the Great Alpine Road, is said to come from an Aboriginal word which means ‘plenty of water’. A very small township which hosts a number of historic buildings, including the Plough Inn, a two–storey hotel built in 1864.
The historic Plough Inn Hotel is open Thursday to Saturday, and is the perfect place to stop by for a great meal or just call in for a drink!
Other buildings of interest include the historic homestead “Carinya’ built in 1880. St Peters Anglican Church (1866) and the Star Hotel (1860’s) which is now a private residence.
Just a short distance from Tarrawingee township on Rushome Road is Tolpuddle Goat Cheese and Farm Foods. Call in and have a tasting or look out for their open days where you can enjoy cheese platters, a drink be it wine or beer from the region, so local entertainment and cuddle with a baby goat.
From Tarrawingee, you could continue through to the Milawa Gourmet Region only minutes down the road, continue on to Beechworth Beechworth or continue your drive along the Great Alpine Road to Bright.
