Tathra to Kalaru Bike Track

The Tathra to Kalaru Bike Track represents the first stage in creating a cycling network between Bega and Tathra.

The aim of the Tathra to Kalaru Bike Track is to design and construct a bike track connecting the townships of Tathra to Kalaru and is entirely funded by a $3,120,000 grant from the NSW State Government under 2017/18 Active Transport Funding.

Link to NSW Government.The project aligns with the Vision and Goals and Short Term Priority proposals of the Bega Valley Bike Plan and will be managed and delivered by Bega Valley Shire Council.

Works to date include:

  • Survey work completed
  • Concept alignment completed
  • Review of Environmental Factors and Aboriginal Due Diligence Assessment completed
  • Arborist Report to provide advice on the protection of the existing fig trees along Bega Street completed
  • Property acquisitions complete
  • Pedestrian/cycle bridge installed
  • Detailed Design completed
  • Construction Tender awarded
  • Staged construction of the bike track is underway


Design efforts are focussed on the southern side of Tathra Road from the Kalaru Bus Stop to the entrance of Tathra. The path will then cross Tathra Road/Bega Street to the northern side where it will finish at the Tathra Primary School.

Further to the public exhibition of the Tathra and Kalaru alignment a community meeting was held on the 27 August 2018 to seek feedback from Tathra residents on the proposed Tathra Alignment.

A copy of the presentation from this meeting is attached below for reference along with the Alignment Options reviewed for the Tathra Segment.

The Funding Agreement between Transport for NSW (formerly NSW Roads & Maritime Services) and Council was received on 22 September 2017.
