Tarcutta is halfway between Sydney and Melbourne. It used to be on the main road but now the Hume Highway by-passes the town. Since Tarcutta is worth a short detour to see the Australian Truck Drivers' Memorial, the Art Deco Horse & Jockey Hotel and the Modernist RSL & Citizens Club.
The club, as well as providing a bowling green, squash court and poker machines, also includes that wonderful quaint Australian tradition of a family restaurant serving Australian & Chinese meals.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
