The township of Taroom lies on the banks of the picturesque Dawson River, 128 kilometres north of Miles. Settlers took up the land here in 1845, just one year after the area's discovery. Most of these settlers came droving flocks of sheep from the overcrowded New England and Hunter Valley districts. When you visit you will notice that today the area is predominately prime range bred beef cattle or grain production. Taroom Shire is renowned for high quality beef cattle, prime hard wheat, other grain crops and forestry products.
The Shire encompasses the townships of Taroom and Wandoan and promotes three exciting self-drive tours to explore the region. These include taking in the breathtaking beauty of Isla Gorge, which abounds with native flora, excellent for bushwalking. The native animals and the general tranquillity add to the sense of peacefulness that ensures a visit to the Gorge will be a truly memorable experience.
Taroom Shire offers visitors accommodation, supermarkets, well- stocked shops, and is an ideal fuel stop. Taroom and Wandoan offer high quality bore water, first-class swimming pools, scenic 18-hole golf links, year-round bowls, tennis, horse racing and polocrosse and excellent showgrounds which stage agricultural shows, rodeos and campdrafting.
