"Due South"

Twenty minutes south from Bermagui is the staggeringly beautiful Mimosa Rocks National Park. Covering an area of nearly 6,000 hectares including 20km of coastline, the park is often heralded as hosting the cleanest saltwater estuary on the east coast of Australia. The combination of soaring spotted gums and Burrawang palms give the area an eerie pre-historic feel. Take a picnic, your swimmers and the camera, you’ll be amazed how time flies.

Tathra, usually synonymous with relaxed beach holidays, is fast gaining a national reputation for the impressive network of mountain bike tracks criss-crossing through the local Bournda National Park, including two 10km loops of quality single track. Whether your family are serious bike enthusiasts or you simply enjoy the peace and pace of two wheels, Tathra is the perfect destination. Hiring bikes is a breeze and there’s even a 2.5km cycling track starting from the front door of the local bike hire shop, leading straight to the delightful Mogareeka inlet.
