Sapphire Coast

22 TATHRA - SAPPHIRECOAST - AUTUMN 2024 Tathra’s holiday vibe is a drawcard in all seasons Tathra is a happy little community that balances an old-fashioned, laid-back attitude, with a modern cosmopolitan style. In the township, you’ll find excellent cafés, takeaway food places, and holiday supplies. The shops are an easy stroll from the beachfront reserve, as is Tathra’s famous skate park, suitable for all ages, and heaps of fun for any type of human-powered wheels. Or you can go a little further and ‘hit the slopes’ on Tathra’s extensive network of bush mountain bike tracks... a favourite with riders of all ages and abilities. Head to the headland You can be as relaxed or as active as you wish in Tathra, where you can keep the whole family entertained with walks along the coastal headland to the historic Tathra Wharf. A renowned local fishing spot, the wharf is classified by the National Trust, and is the only remaining steamer wharf on the Australian coastline. You can also take your bikes on easy tracks to the local reserves, go bird watching, snorkelling, or just wander out to get some fish and chips to enjoy by the water. The holiday vibe of Tathra is a drawcard in all seasons, and it’s especially popular during the periods like the Easter long weekend and school holidays, when visitors flock to the region to enjoy the pristine beaches and estuaries, National Parks, and a range of other activities and services. Be sure to take the lovely walk through the shady reserve that lines the main road. It will take you to a four-kilometre stretch of beach, upon which you’ll enjoy a magnificent view stretching from Tathra’s historic wharf to the Mimosa Rocks National Park headland. More to explore Kianniny Bay, Mogareeka Inlet, Moon Bay, Nelson Beach, Middle Beach, Bithrey Inlet, Wapengo, Picnic Point, and Aragunnu Beach are just some of the stunning waterways and sandy stretches to explore while you’re in this beautiful region. There are many very safe children’s play areas in and around these beaches. Tathra’s many restaurants and cafés source seasonal, locally-grown produce where possible, including farm-fresh eggs, vegetables, fruits and olives from local orchards, and herbs from local gardens. And of course the Sapphire Coast – with its unpolluted seawater – provides an abundance of delicious fresh seafood, including creamy oysters, Eden mussels, prawns, blackfish, flathead, bream, lobster, abalone and much more. The freshly-shucked Wapengo and Nelson Lagoon oysters have been winning awards for more than a decade, and can be purchased direct from Tathra’s oyster growers. Tathra’s historic wharf is a favourite with sightseers and fisherpeople, providing sweeping coastal views across the azure waters of Boulder Bay.
