Description

Mimosa Rocks National Park starts at the northern end of Tathra Beach and runs north for about 16 km. The most recent addition to the park was the acquisition in 1999 of 260 acres subdivided from the Murrah Gardens Estate owned by the Hammond family, which includes the coastline of Bunga Beach and Goalen Head. It has five access roads from the Tathra-Bermagui main road. There are four main campsites in the Mimosa Rocks National Park; Gillards, Middle Beach, Aragannu, and Picnic Point. All campsites have barbecues and non-flush toilets available.
