The Taroona Book

'Taroona 1808-1986 Farm Lands to a Garden Suburb', was published in 1988 by Taroona Historical Group.


This valuable reference on the history of Taroona has been out of print for many years and print copies are difficult to source. There was only one limited edition of 1000 copies.

The book is now available to everyone on this website, supported by the Taroona Community Association.
