The coastal town of Tathra is rich in history and traditions of the sea. Tathra Wharf is still a centre of activity today, its historic timbers standing proud and creating a focus for visitors and those wanting to cast a line. It is the only remaining sea wharf on the East Coast and watches over the main beach as it meanders 3km around the shoreline. Tathra Beach is patrolled in summer and protected from southerly winds making it great for surf, board riding and sailboarding.


While the Tathra Wharf stands proud above the waters, below is a wonderland for scuba divers and snorkelers. Fur seals and Fairy Penguins from the colony on Montague Island sometimes frequent the waters around the Tathra Wharf and are quite willing to let you be a part of their underwater world. Dolphins are also common visitors to this area and they can be seen off most beach areas in Tathra.
