Tarcoola is a town in the Far North of South Australia. It is 416 kilometres north-north west of Port Augusta.
The town was proclaimed on February 21, 1901. The name was taken from the nearby Tarcoola Goldfields.
Tarcoola is at an important railway junction. From a point just west of the township the Ghan line heads north and the Indian Pacific line heads west.
At the turn of the century Tarcoola was an important gold mining town and the field is still occasionally worked today.
