Located in the City of Greater Shepparton and often known as Water Wheel Country, Tatura is home to Tatura Milk Industries, Snow Brand, a siginficant DPI research station, and the Institute of Sustainable Irrigated Agriculture.

Tatura is steeped in history, with seven Prisoner of War Camps in operation around the district during World War II. The German War Cemetery and one of the most significant war time museums in Victoria are located in Tatura, depicting the cultural history through photographs, memorabilia, artefacts, intelligence reports and newspaper articles.

Not only does Tatura have a plethora of history, but it also holds many of Greater Shepparton's major events, from The Taste of Tatura food & wine festival in March, to International Dairy Week in January.

Tatura Park, a significant event and exhibition centre, hosts International Dairy Week - the largest annual dairy cattle sale and show in the southern hemisphere. The event attracts and showcases the best of Australia's dairy breeds and draws over 6,000 exhibitors, vendors and onlookers from Australia and overseas to discuss the latest trends and innovations.

Tatura Park is also host to many of Australia's best western, quarter horse, dressage and showjumping events.

Centrally located, Lake Bartlett offers visitors an array of colour with over 20 bollards on display, all painted by local artists, schools and community groups. These bollards represent community projects from the past, the present and the future.

Still standing, just outside Tatura, is one of the largest station homesteads over built in Australia. Built in 1877 for pastoralist James Winter, the Dhurringile Mansion boasts 65 rooms and a colourful past. Today the Dhurringile Mansion is used as a minimum security prison and maintains its original beauty and wonder.

Tatura is a network of irrigation channels and fertile land, hosting a growing number of farming industries including crops, fruit, vegetable cultivation, dairy, sheep and cattle.

Industry in Tatura doesn't spoil the natural environment with Cussen Park wetlands, host to an array of wildlife, birdlife and mammals. This 33 hectare wetlands area provides educational opportunities and passive recreation with a number of bird hides, an observation deck and an abundance of indigenous plants and animals.
