Tathra is a small coastal township clustered around a historic sea wharf, a popular fishing platform and the only one of its kind remaining on the east coast of Australia.
Tathra's historic steamer wharf is a popular fishing platform and the only one of its kind remaining on the State's coast. To the north of Tathra is Mimosa Rocks National Park, a 17-km strip of coast where crashing waves have eaten a honeycomb of sea caves from the cliffs and left towering rock stacks from ancient lava flows stranded in the sea. To the south, Bournda National Park has similarly spectacular geography of isolated beaches, lakes and rugged cliffs.
At the northern end of Tathra Beach, Mogareeka Inlet is the broad, sandy mouth of the Bega River, with safe swimming for children. Boat ramps facilitate access to the estuary and the sea. Other towns in the Sapphire Coast area include Bega, Bermagui, Eden, Merimbula and Pambula.
Tathra has accommodation options to suit your needs including self contained accommodation, cabins, bed & breakfasts and caravan & camping.
