The local Taylorville swimming hole is popular for swimming and dog-walking, but West Coast Regional Council advises against swimming in it after heavy rain due to elevated levels of E. coli.[2]

Taylorville is also right next to the historic Brunner Mine site.[3]

Taylorville used to be connected to Wallsend, located on the opposite side of the Grey River, with a suspension bridge for pedestrians providing a connection. The bridge washed away in the 1960s.[4]
