First proclaimed in 1885, Tarlo was once a thriving little village by the river. The area is now a rural oasis dominated by farmland and bushland providing a scenic backdrop on the drive to Taralga, Wombeyan Caves, Crookwell, or Goulburn.
Over the years many families have run small farms in the area with cows and sheep still very prevalent across the landscape. Gone though is the original piggery at Riverview once a dominant feature on the landscape by the river. Visitors today can walk the grounds and view the displays to capture a sense of the rugged lifestyle.
In 1974 Taralga Road was realigned to allow for a higher stronger bridge across the Tarlo River after a successful campaign by local to replace the old damaged bridge 400m to the south. The footings of the old bridge, built in 1908, still stand today overlooking the river used now only for picnics and fishing.
