Additional Notes Tambo is located on the Landsborough Highway approximately 1000km north west of Brisbane. Tambo, known originally as Carrangarra, was the first township on the Barcoo River. The settlement began in 1864 as pastoralists began taking up land for grazing. In 1868 the town was surveyed and renamed Tambo. A building boom occurred in the 1870s during which a hospital, bank, post office, school and courthouse were constructed. The pastoral industry remains the basis of Tambo's economy today.
