Vincent Dowling’s decision in 1864 to establish a pastoral lease (which he named ‘Thargomindah Station’) resulted in a town of the same name being gazetted in 1874. Today, Thargomindah is a modern country town with most services a visitor would expect.

Thargomindah retains much of its bush character with nicknames in common use! Say hello to the Mayor ‘Tractor’ Ferguson, or ‘Dogga’ Dare and Rob and ��Duck’ and ‘Daisy’ who owns the hotel.
