Over the years, Tahmoor has had many names including Myrtle Creek, Bargo West, Cordeaux, Bronzewing Park and finally Tahmoor, a local aboriginal word meaning "Bronze winged Pigeon".

Tahmoor is enjoying a flush of commercial growth and is considered the commercial centre of the Shire. However despite the modernity of the town, there still remain intriguing pockets of history and nature, including the oldest house in the Shire, Tahmoor House, now privately owned.

Tahmoor has the largest population in the Shire and has recently enjoyed a main street beautification enjoyed by both locals and visitors to the area.

Population (as at Census 2011): 4,505
