Lined with historic architecture including the beautiful Court House and old convent buildings, the main street of 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 cultural history through photographs, memorabilia, artefacts, intelligence reports and newspaper articles. Visit the statue of Victoria Cross recipient Private Robert Mactier, in the park named in his honour. Military history is also depicted on the large scale murals adorning the 1912 Tatura Water Tower, which depicts on one side WW1 Australian military commander Sir John Monash (who designed the tower), and on the other side remembrance poppies.
Tatura is also home to Cussen Park, a natural wetland environment which comes alive with an array of natural wildlife and birdlife. The attractive Lake Bartlett is located centrally in town and Stuart Mock Place where the town and its people are depicted in a beautiful mosaic artwork.
