Tarro is a suburb in Newcastle formerly called Upper Hexham. The suburb got its name from the Aboriginal word “tarro” meaning “stone”. The early Tarro area consisted of farms that were scattered around the wetlands. Tarro became a suburban area only after the end of World War II.
Today, Tarro is a small suburb that consists of a residential area with a newsagency-general store, restaurants, a petrol station, a butcher’s shop and a few hotels and motels. Tarro also consists of a park where residents play sports and engage in different types of recreational activities. One of the main features of Tarro is the war memorial erected to commemorate World War I veterans. It was unveiled in 1920, but was moved to the Fred Harvey Oval, Lawson Avenue in Woodberry in 1974.
