Tathra Beach

Natural Attractions

Tathra Beach is a stunning sandy beach in the heart of Tathra, stretching north to Mogareeka Inlet and pristine Mimosa Rocks National Park.

Migrating whales always pop in, the bay is home to many seabirds such as the endangered Little Tern, and there’s an abundance of wallabies and kangaroos who love to visit the beach in the mornings.

The beach meanders three kms along the shoreline and is protected from southerly winds, making it great for surf, board riding and sailboarding. There are beach wheelchairs with floats available from the surf club (call 0427 941 467), and fully accessible accommodation nearby. An all-abilities playground features within the park right next to the beach, so it truly is fun for all.

The Tathra Surf Life Saving Club has been in operation for over 100 years and is key to some major events including the biennial George Bass Marathon and the Tathra Wharf to Waves ocean swim event each January.

At the northern end of the beach, Mogareeka Inlet provides sheltered swimming, paddling and fishing.

There are countless opportunities for adventure in the hills that surround the town with 55+ kilometres of expert built, single track mountain bike trails, and the Kangarutha Track is an excellent coastal challenge.
