Tangambalanga is a town in north-eastern Victoria, approximately 20 kilometres south-east of Wodonga, in the Kiewa Valley, and 5 kilometres from the Hume Weir.
I spent a short time working in this picturesque town when I worked in Victoria and I just love the name and how it rolls off the tongue so beautifully.
Tangambalanga is home to less than 500 people and was named after the Tangambalanga pastoral run (1838-39), and it is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word referring to a large freshwater crustacean, the Murray River or white clawed lobster.
There is not much commercial activity left in town nowadays but the the General Store which also houses the postal services is well stocked and I can vouch for the freshly made salad rolls. The butcher shop opposite has an excellent range of meat.
