Taradale is a rural township on the Calder Highway, 17 km north-west of Kyneton. It is about the same distance south-east of Castlemaine, and is situated in a valley formed by the Back Creek near its junction with the Coliban River.

Taradale was named after Tarradale, Scotland, the birthplace of the geologist Sir Roderick Murchison. The name was given by a colonial surveyor.
