Tarnagulla is a rural township 40 km west of Bendigo and on the road and railway line (1888) between Dunolly and Inglewood.

In 1852 gold was found in Sandy Creek, the remains of which are in the north of the Tarnagulla township. The Sandy Creek lead was particularly rich, yielding numerous nuggets. Further leads ran eastwards, and the Poverty Gully lead (named after Poverty Bay, New Zealand) became a mainstay of Tarnagulla's economy.
