Tathra is a small town on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

Understand[edit]

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.

Get around[edit]

You can walk just about everywhere here. Parking is adequate at the beach, but a walk from most directions is a better experience than driving.

  • The Beach, (It's the bit where the sea stops at the land You can't miss it really.). 24. A pretty good beach. It is very long, but only has lifeguards at the southern end. That end of the beach can get a little crowded because of this, but not to any extreme level and it should be easy to find a spot some space away from anyone else. Good surf and adequate shops make this one of the better beaches to spend a day. FREE!.  edit

  • Fat Tony's Bar & Grill, 15 Bega Street (Between the catholic church and the pub), (02) 6494 4550, [1]. Lunch opening and dinner opening Tues-Sat. An awesome restaurant with steaks that melt in your mouth. A real surprise for a restaurant in such a sleepy village, Fat Tony's Bar & Grill has a great menu selection. Another plus is that the waitresses are all amazingly good looking. Two minuses to this place are the price, which while fantastic value probably rules out regular visits for a few people. The second minus is the beer. A good selection, but in true Australian fashion comes at just above freezing, is a low volume and tasteless. In defence of Fat tony's, this is Australia and so is to be expected.  edit
