With respect, Tathra Chamber of Commerce acknowledges the traditional owners of this land, the Yuin people.
Tathra still has the charm of a seaside holiday of a bygone era. A coastal village on the Sapphire Coast of NSW.
Tathra offers pristine beaches and estuaries, National Parks, and a range of activities. Tathra's historic wharf - the grand old dame of the sea - sits like a pink sapphire in the bay. Classified by the National Trust as the only remaining steamer wharf on the Australian coastline, its museum offers a glimpse into the history of the region. You never know who may come to join you ...
Pristine beaches, fishing, surfbreaks and over 40ks of mountain bike tracks, Tathra has an experience for all.
The Tathra Surf Lifesaving Club patrols the Tathra Beach from September to end of April.
At the northern end of the beach is Mogareeka Inlet - a broad, sandy mouth of the Bega River with safe swimming for children with boat access to the estuary.
Safe sea access can be obtained at Kianinny part of the Tathra Amateur Fishing Club services to our town.
