The main access point to the Tarago Reservoir is via the Jindivick road, a few minutes drive west of town. A turn off leads to a car park near the dam wall where is there is attractive park land with BBQ shelters and picnic areas. While the dam wall is closed for walking across, there is a track which descends down to bushland at the base of the dam wall from where the Tarago River flows. A little further west is the small community of Jindivick which is well-known for its farms that produce gourmet foods such as olives, berries, cheeses and small goods. The journey north along the Main Neerim Road passes through scenic countryside and lush rolling hills surrounding the small communities of Neerim and Neerim Junction.
