"Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Country Town"

I moved to Tarlee out of a spur-of-the-moment type decision. It didn't take me long to fall in love with the town. The community is very willing to give, care and communicate with every individual as if the town is one big family. Every one looks out for everyone else, so safety is a major priority here. The children of the town have quiet a luxurious life style where they can happily walk to their friends house, to the take-out for an ice block or simply to walk/ride and get some 'fresh' air and exercise. The school is a hidden gem with the principal and teachers caring and catering to the students as individuals- not just another number. Every student has a learning plan tailored to their capabilities, something you wouldn't find in a 'bigger' school. The classrooms are always clean/sanitary and well equipped. The grounds are always maintained to a high standard, a pretty site to drive past or stop and have a picnic on the weekend with the family.

"Small town with great spirit!"

Looking for that relaxed layback, sleepy little town? Warm and friendly town and farm folk. You can either join in with the community spirit or keep to yourself. Fantastic Pub with great priced meals as well as a social club. Lawn bowls, Tennis club, Motel and Roadhouse. A great place to stop is the Four Leaf Mill and buy your organic flour's. Tarlee Markets are twice a year at the town institute and surrounding oval. Uniting Church, Catholic Church as well as a Baptist Church. Very good Primary school.
Pros
  • Community minded
  • Friendly
Cons
  • Could use a Deli/takeaway/Bakery.
  • No ATM
