Middle Lagoon walking track leads through beautiful coastal bushland featuring the ancient burrawangs - a cycad that grows abundantly on the south coast of NSW. Just north of Tathra, this short track winds through a diverse range of vegetation to the shore of Middle Lagoon. It's a great spot to bring the family or visitors to introduce them to the natural beauty of the region, with loads of wildlife and great birdwatching.
Wallabies and kangaroos are often seen near the tranquil waters of the lagoon, as well as sea eagles, pelicans and black swans. When you reach the coast, enjoy a refreshing swim or surf. You might see dolphins frolicking in the waves, or perhaps whales during their annual migration.
Retrace your steps and enjoy a leisurely picnic at the nearby tables, or if you're tempted, stay overnight at nearby Middle Beach campground or Myer House.
About the region
Located not far from Bega on the far south coast of NSW, Mimosa Rocks National Park offers a great camping holiday. Visit today to go fishing or birdwatching.
Just a short drive from Bega, Mimosa Rocks National Park offers up show-stopping headland views, beaches and pure lagoons, and you’ll be spoilt for choice with lookouts, rainforest pockets and historic sites to explore.
The park takes its name from the Paddle Steamer Mimosa that wrecked in 1863 after running onto rocks at the northern end of the park. The rocks of Mimosa have distinctive castle-like features that are the result of intricate folds, faults and intrusions occurring in the rock. For a view you’ll never forget, head to Bunga Head for sunrise, the rocks look magnificent backed by the pinks of the early morning sky.
