Wildlife sanctuary – land for wildlife

Tathra Hill Top Retreat wildlife sanctuary was established in 1978. Tathra abounds with wildlife and to protect this valuable resource 50 acres was set aside as land for wildlife and the sanctuary was formed.

Walking trails have been marked so guests can enjoy this truly delightful place.
Bring your hiking boots and explore this wonderful place or stay to the more gentle tracks and enjoy the scenery. It is particularly beautiful in Winter, with carpets of ferns, babbling creeks and little waterfalls, and crisp fresh air.

Set high in the Valley, overlooking Tathra, the views from the sanctuary are breathtaking.Kangaroo dropped by at Tathra Hilltop Retreat
