Information

Taroom has services that are open 7 days.

It is situated on the banks of the Dawson River.

A check with the local Police if attempting the Taroom-Roma road as it is a seasonal road that is impassable after rain. This road is being upgraded at the moment to at least a single laned sealed road. They classed the road as gravel, but in fact it is a black soil road with the odd rock placed to enable it to be classed as a gravel road :))NOTE: The road to Roma is now sealed all the way.

The Dawson river has a weir situated at Taroom to allow the town to obtain long term water self sufficiency. The fishing there is reported at good.

In the main street there a tree which was marked by explorer Ludwig Leichhardt when the passed the site in 1844. The town was founded in the following year.
