Situated on State Highway 8, Tarras Village is less than 30 minutes drive from both Cromwell and Wanaka. To the north lies the Lindis Pass and Omarama, 83 kilometres away.

The vast open space includes a superb vista which takes in the Dunstan Range to the east and the Pisa Range to the west. To the south is a great view looking down the Cromwell Valley, north east to the St Bathan's Range and north west to the mountains and Matukituki Valley.

TARRAS NEWS

The CODC have confirmed they will erect a large Toilet sign on the Tarras facility - after July 2019!

Bonar's sterling work maintaining the recycling depot has been acknowledged by the Tarras Community Trust. A token of appreciation will be forwarded.

The broadband cabinet at Bendigo was upgraded last week resulting in a x2 increase in speed.
Check with your provider as you may be able to upgrade to VDSL.

Waste Transfer Station: there has been a significant increase in un-bagged waste deposited in the skips as well as the use of black bags. The CODC is quite specific in that orange CODC bags only are to be used. This facility is in place for the whole community and to lose it because of the actions of a few would negatively affect us all.
