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!
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.
Situated just on the edge of the township is Tolpuddle Goat Cheese & Farm Food. Taste some of their cheese or attend an open day. Their open days are held throughout the year. See their facebook site for more information.
From Tarrawingee, you could continue through to the Milawa Gourmet Region only minutes down the road, turn off to Beechworth or travel the Great Alpine Rd to Myrtleford or Bright.
