Tathra, NSW

Tathra came into existence as a small jetty, which served as a shipping outlet for a group of local farmers in the 1850’s. Tathra Wharf, a famous and historical wharf has been restored to its former glory and is a perfect spot to set yourself up for a day’s relaxed fishing. It is the only remaining coastal steamer wharf in New South Wales.


Today, Tathra surrounds itself in the natural beauty of both Mimosa and Bournda National Parks, where you can enjoy bountiful fishing and numerous boating activities. The area is home to many seabirds and abundant wildlife.

The town is rich in history and traditions of the sea, and the Wharf is popular for visitors and those wanting to cast a line.
