Go birdwatching at Nelson Lagoon


Located in the Mimosa Rocks National Park, this lagoon is the perfect spot for birdwatching and fishing.

From the Nelson Beach carpark, it’s a short and easy walk to the lagoon.

Don’t forget those binoculars!

Spring is the ideal time for a spot of birdwatching at the lagoon – be on the lookout for pied oystercatchers, striated thornbills and little wattlebirds.


Sit back and enjoy a spot of fishing, or if you’re looking for something a little more active, bring your kayak and go for a paddle around the lagoon.

There are beautiful spots along the water’s edge for a picnic.

And it’s not far to get back to the beach.

Nelson Lagoon is in the southern part Mimosa Rocks National Park. To get there:

  • From Tathra, follow Tathra-Bermagui Road.
  • Turn right onto Nelson Lake Road and follow the signs to Nelson Beach
  • Nelson Lagoon is a short walk from the carpark.
