Welcome to Tarcutta
Tarcutta is a great place to take a break whilst travelling the Hume Highway. You can rest off the busy highway, enjoy a warm meal, cold drink, great coffee or simply just stretch your legs. The park is a great place to let the kids burn some energy, boasting excellent play equipment. Take some time to view the National Australan Truck Drivers Memorial, and its message of road safety.
A BBQ can be found in the park so why not pack some sausages and plan your lunch break in Tarcutta. The public toilets are located on the hill in the centre of town, and many travellers comment they are the cleanest on the hume! Clean showers for travellers can be found in the amenities block adjacent the toilets.
Looking for a shady park in summer, try behind the park in Bent St or under the shady trees at the tennis courts between Tarcutta Auto Repairs and Tarcutta Caltex.
Our village has some interesting little shops to visit – check out Farmhouse right in the centre of town for gift ideas, souvenirs, clothing and hand crafts. Visit Tarcutta Textiles on the northern end of town for local manufactured knitwear. Grab a bargain with direct from the factory prices. The op shop has a large selection of pre-loved goods; you’ll be amazed at the treasures you may find.
Other services include a Post Office, Mechanic (Tarcutta Auto Repairs), hardware store (Tarcutta Rural) and there is a police station. Those associated with the road transport industry may wish to the national office for the Transhelp Foundation (follow centenary ave to the top of the hill).
For a meal try the Halfway Cafe, Caltex Cafe, Horse and Jockey Hotel. The RSL Club has Friday night Chinese meals and the Halfway Motel has an in-house restaurant.
