I'm organising a dive trip to Tathra on 14/15 April. Tathra is on the south coast 18km from Bega and approx 240km from Canberra. About 2:50 drive time from Canberra. The drive is via Cooma.
While Tathra has a number of dive sites - the real attraction IMHO are the Tathra Pinnacles which are about 7km north east of Tathra and 1.5km from shore. These twin peaks rise from about 28m and come up to about 7m. There is often some current at the site. They are spectacular terrain wise, with good of fish life.
More dive sites are described here > http://scuba.club.anu.edu.au/sites/tathra.php#divesites
I won't be at gear issue so if you have any questions please send me an email.
We'll be camping at the Hobart Beach campsite in the Bournda National Park, around 10km south of Tathra. This is a lovely campsite in a bush setting with covered shelter if it rains, wood fireplaces, laundry, and hot showers.
Costs are (approximately) $12.50 per adult per night, plus $7.00 per car per day (unless you have an NSW National Parks Pass). You will need to get a car pass at the self service kiosks in the campground area.
I have checked camp site availability and there are almost no bookings at this point. Once we have an idea of numbers I will arrange bookings (I might need some help, since there is a booking limit of 3 sites per person.)
Some people will come down Friday night and camp two nights others just the Saturday night.
We will be using the club compressor to fill tanks.
The club is a keen proponent of safe diving and boating. Please read the section
