Named as Hochkirk by its German founders in 1853, this small town changed its name to Tarrington in 1916 due to world events at the time, Tarrington has maintained a strong and proud German heritage.

The local Lutheran School, St. Michaels is the longest continuing school of its kind in the country, having been established in 1853.

At nearby Tabor, a bluestone enclave was built by the early German pioneers.

The Tarrington community may be small but is very strong. Although within cycling distance of Hamilton it has very much remained a separate entity with a very proud population.

Many new residents have recently moved to the town as a lifestyle choice and with the opportunity to see the renowned pinot grapes growing over the fence you can’t blame them.

For those staying in nearby Hamilton, Tarrington offers the opportunity to cycle the 10 kilometres on a dedicated track, enjoying the pastoral and geographic views along the way and stopping for a cappuccino or pinot noir at the café or windery before returning. A trip that will be healthy, interesting and rewarding.
