Tarcutta is renowned for being a Transport friendly town, being ideally located half way between Sydney and Melbourne.
In 1956 when the great floods hit Tarcutta, hundreds of drivers were left stranded in Tarcutta, with the road unpassable. The Tarcutta community looked after them, providing cooked meals.
Soon after this the community wanted a hospital, and for the truckies it was important with the local doctor being called upon on many occations following accidents. A building fund was started and was contributed to by the transport industry and the locals. In 1962 the new hospital was built.
Today the hospital has closed, but the trucks still arrive in the hundreds each night. The new Changeover Bay, located in the centre of town comes to life each night as the many rigs roll into town to have a meal, shower or a sleep. Some change over trailers before doing their return trip, whilst others continuously roll through town.
