Tathra sits at the southern end of Mimosa Rocks National Park. Over the Christmas week in 2011 some friends and I rented a house at Mogareeka - essentially north Tathra. The house butted up against the park boundary, and a short walking track led to some nice little spots around Moon Bay.

Corymbia maculata (formerly Eucalyptus maculata), Colloquially known as Spotted Gum, these trees are common in sandy areas along the south coast. They shed their bark in this distinctive patchy way.
Another view from the house, looking east around sunrise.
This image and the other black-and-white ones that follow are from previous trips I've made to Mimosa Rocks, just north of Tathra.
Mimosa Rocks National Park is on the south coast of New South Wales, and consists of a series of little bays, beaches, headlands and interesting rock formations. It's named after the Mimosa which was shipwrecked there in 1863.
Very late in the afternoon and a very long exposure - 3 minutes if I remember correctly. I think these are the actual Mimosa Rocks after which the park is named.
Another one from Mimosa Rocks National Park. This photo was taken in the late afternoon, unlike most of the other coast shots.
