Tarnagulla is a small rural town situated in the heart of the Golden Triangle, central Victoria, Australia.
It is a town founded on the excitement and hope of the Victorian Gold rush and quickly developed into a thriving community. Many large company gold mines employed scores of miners at their peak and many large gold nuggets were found. It was a town of enormous wealth for some. Over the years as gold became less plentiful many turned to farming and other pursuits.
With a colorful history, Tarnagulla today is a quiet town with a population of only a few hundred.
