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 six days a week, and is the perfect place to stop by for a great meal or just call in for a drink!
“Country Victoria is full of dining surprises; one such is the grand dining room and wisteria-shrouded rear patio of Tarrawingee’s Plough Inn. Expect the unexpected…”The Age Good Food Guide, 2013
Other buildings of interest include the historic homestead “Carinya’ built in 1880 which is now a guesthouse, St Peters Anglican Church (1866) and the Star Hotel (1860’s) which is now a private residence.
