Mogareeka is at the northern end of Tathra Beach at the Bega River mouth.
Shallow waters and the adjoining park offers a great venue for families to picnic, or to launch a kayak or SUP. There’s also a boat ramp for fishers.
The Bega River mouth was a problem to early settlers living north of the river, who were unable to cross to the Tathra Wharf to despatch produce and collect supplies. A steep and dangerous track over Doctor George Mountain inland to Bega was the only option. People just had to take a punt and in later years that was the best way to cross this beautiful estuary.
