Sydney Australia Tourist Guide
Mimosa National Park is located north of the township of Tathra Beach and just east of Bega. This beautiful park extends for some 16 kilometres along this part of the NSW Coast and almost up to Bermagui, located some 22kms to the north. Things to do here include spotting wildlife and birdwatching, swimming and snorkelling, mountain biking, surfing the waves on the beaches and fishing.
The park offers stunning views of the coastline, crystal clear waterways, lagoons, a number of sandy beaches and eucalypt and rainforest to explore. There are also historical places to find, the park is named after a paddle steamer that foundered on the rocks in 1863.
Along the South Coast of NSW there are also some great picnic areas with views to enjoy. On the headlands, with a bit of luck you can spot migrating whales in winter.
There are numerous walks available with varying levels of difficulty. The Mimosa Rocks walking track has wheelchair access and easy for young children, starting at Aragunnu carpark. At the end, you can spot the wreck of the paddle steamer near a large pyramid shaped rock.
Inside the park, there are camping sites available including Gillards, Middle Beach, Aragannu, and Picnic Point. Space is limited during the busy summer months and school holidays. Some of them have motorhome access.
