Members of the community are invited to the official opening of the Wharf to Wharf walk, which links the historic Tathra and Merimbula Wharves across 27km of spectacular coastline and wilderness.

The official opening ceremony will be held at Tathra Wharf at 10am June 26 and a 45-minute guided walk to explore the start of the trail will begin shortly after at 11am.

To celebrate the opening of the walk, a range of free family activities are being offered. The Tathra Wharf Museum is offering free entry all weekend, teaching visitors about the fascinating maritime history of the building and town. There will be a treasure hunt on the Tathra Headland from 11am, run by Bournda Environmental Education Centre.

The NPWS Junior Discovery Rangers will also be at headland from 11am until 2pm offering games, quizzes mask making and more hands-on activities. The walk links existing trails through public coastal reserves, flora reserves, beaches and Bournda National Park.
