Tara is bordered by Isahaya, Omura, Kashima and the Ariake Sea. On a clear day, it is possible to see the mountains across the sea. Tara includes Mount Tara, which is one of the highest mountains in Kyushu and part of the Tara mountains. Tara is comprised of two sections, which were once independent towns: Tara (多良) and Oura (大浦). Tara is located quite close to the Kashima Gatalympics, which takes place near Hizen-Iida Station.
Route 207 runs through the length of the town, and is the only road to Nagasaki Prefecture. The mountains are seeded with small roads, many of them one lane and unpaved. A road leads from camp Nakayama towards Kashima and Ureshino.
