The Tyrendarra township lies within a bend of Darlot Creek, before it enters the Fitzroy River—which also flows through the locality. At the , Tyrendarra and the surrounding area had a population of 243.

The area was settled in the 1870s and a Post Office opened around February 1879 and closed in 2000.

Tyrendarra is well known for the Tyrendarra Pastoral and Agricultural show and the Tyrendarra Rodeo which are held each year at the Tyrendarra sports reserve.
