The Memorial Gardens visually showcase Tathra history with informational signs being erected by the Lions Club and plaques containing the names of Tathra residents. The gardens include an historical plaque detailing the role of Tathra headland during World War Two. The information plaque gives the history of the submarine attack off the Tathra coast which was sketched by Lorna Waterson a member of the Volunteer Air Observer Corp.

The Tathra Memorial Garden is a concept of Mrs Rosemary Brittliff who wanted somewhere for locals to be remembered as Tathra does not have a cemetery.
