Suburb profile: Tatura, VIC 3616

Tatura is a town in the Goulburn Valley situated within the City of Greater Shepparton local government area, 167 kilometres north of Melbourne and 18 kilometres west of the regional centre of Shepparton.

Tatura is an Aboriginal word meaning "small lagoon."

One of the defining historical features of Tatura is the Dethridge water-wheel which can be seen beside the roadside as you enter the town. It was established to regulate the flow of water along irrigation channels and consequently the district's prosperity is a result of an extensive irrigation project which, combined with the rich soil, has resulted in excellent dairy farming, cereal crops, fruit and vegetable cultivation, sheep and cattle. That, in turn, led to the establishment of a tomato-processing factory, a dairy products plant and an abattoir. The intensive agriculture of the area is evident in its importance as Victoria's major centre for research into irrigation management related issues and its place as the head office of Goulburn-Murray Water - the regional water management authority.
