Tallangatta, a rural town in north-east Victoria, is on the southern shoreline of an arm of Lake Hume, 30 km south-east of Wodonga. Present day Tallangatta dates from the 1950s, and the original township was 7 km east and is now shown on maps as Old Tallangatta.

In 1838 pastoralists from New South Wales took up the Tallangatta pastoral run. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word describing currawong trees.
