Stop here for railway history, bushwalks, markets and more.

Nestled in the picturesque valleys of the Central West, a 40-minute drive east of Bathurst, Tarana is a treat for outdoor adventurers who love hiking, rock climbing, fishing and nature.

Railway history buffs will adore the Tarana railway station complex. Built in the Victorian era, the station, along with several other features have all been pristinely preserved. Tarana station is still serviced by several trains a day. The train will only stop if passengers are pre-booked to board or alight here. Visit transportnsw.info to plan your trip.

One you have worked up an appetite exploring the sights, there is a cafe and the Tarana Hotel for a hearty meal. Tarana Farmers’ Markets are also held here on the fourth Sunday of the month to support local growers and producers.

Tarana Hotel

Grab the famous 'Tarana Tiger Burger' and relax in front of the wood fire inside in the cooler months, or in the sunny beer garden when it's warm, with some of the best pub views in the country!

Evans Crown Nature Reserve

The hike to the top takes around 30 minutes along a medium grade, well-formed track. The views are well worth the effort! You'll feel small wandering among giant granite boulders, or 'tors'.

Flat Rock Picnic Area

Bathurst's version of the beach, you will often find locals coming here on hot days for a cool off in the Fish River. Limited facilities and unpatrolled so always exercise caution.

Mumma Snow's Country Kitchen

The coziest cafe in all the land. Mumma Snow's menu is full of delicious homestyle meals and sweet treats, complemented by locally roasted coffee, perfectly brewed.
