Must-Ride: Tathra, NSW

Words by Flow | Images by Damian Breach and Reiner Schuster

Tathra, oh Tathra… Tucked away on the far south coast of NSW, Tathra is a cruisy seaside town harbouring a sensational singletrack secret.

Stashed away in the hills that slope down to meet the golden sand is more great trail than you can squirt a leaky hydra-pack hose at. There’s almost 50km of some of the finest handbuilt trails imaginable; in fact there’s so much trail and so few riders that the locals are crying out for more more riders to drop by and help keep the leaves off.

We’re good Samaritans here at Flow, so we heeded the Tathrans cries for trail-clearing assistance. We packed the cars, loading in our cross-country bikes, and hit the road south. You can read all about it in issue #3, but watching the video above and casting your eye over the shots below should give you a pretty good idea of what you’re missing out on.

Flowing down the ‘Bridges’ trail. This is a must-ride.

Signposted and mapped trails, plus a full-stocked bike shop. You cannot go wrong.

Razzing around the ‘water tank’ trails on the south side of town.

It’s all about the burgers. Small town, big burgers.

The killer trails of Bermagui are just up the road.

Bikes, boards and bromance.

Two hands for beginners please.
