Beware – Google Maps is actually showing the location for Tara incorrectly!!  We have alerted them to this problem but it is yet to be rectified.  If when you view Tara on the Google Map you find Tara north of Route 87, on the road towards Chinchilla, please note that Tara is actually further south, on the Surat Development Road which travels west towards Meandarra.  Direct Google Maps link can be found here.
