Tanjil and Tanjil South

Tanjil South is a rural locality in eastern Victoria, 7 km north of Moe. Tanjil, a former gold mining town, was further north in the direction of Mount Baw Baw and was part of the Russells Creek-Baw Baw diggings (1859). Both sites are on the Tanjil River, Tanjil near its headwaters and Tanjil South on river flats.

The name Tanjil was derived from the Tangel pastoral run (1844) and was derived from an Aboriginal word meaning frost or snow.
