Tathra Wharf to Waves
Time & Location
About the Event
The Tathra Wharf to Waves Ocean events are a number of ocean swims held each year in January. The swims include the 1200m ‘Splash for Cash’ open race (12+ yrs) and a series of 600m age races from the Historic Tathra Wharf where a specially designed platform is attached for the swim from which the competitors enter the water. Competitors swim around a course and finish on the beach in front of the Tathra Surf Life Saving Club. Every swimmer has the chance to win great prizes in their division.
The best vantage point to view the swims is the viewing platform in the Memorial Gardens on the headland above the Tathra Wharf. Another great view is the walking track that takes you from the south end of the beach up a series of steps to the top of Tathra. Ask a local, and they will set you off on your way. Otherwise, stay on the beach and cheer the competitors on as they come in from the swim and run up to the finishing line! FIND OUT MORE
