Tallangatta Valley

Our Region

Nestled in a valley surrounded by beautiful hills, one cannot help being impressed with the picturesque approach to the township of Tallangatta.

Tallangatta was built in the 1950's when the "Old" town was flooded by the height increase of the Hume Dam when it was raised to allow storage of more water for the irrigators down stream. The 'new' town was positioned on the shores of the lake.

Pleasant drives may be made from this centre in every direction, amidst the most charming valleys and mountain scenery. A delight for many tourist's with every bend in the road unveiling another magnificent view.

The two major water catchment areas are Lake Hume and Dartmouth Dam with the Murray River and Mitta Mitta River playing an important role for many community members. Snow fields are a leisurely few hours drive away.

Tallangatta and surrounding areas are primarily farming country, concentrating on beef and dairy cattle. Many younger community members travel the short distance to Albury/Wodonga for employment.
