Wathawuy (Latram River and Goanna Lagoon) is a freshwater stream that winds its way through open eucalyptus forest and bushland. Located only a short half hour drive, approximately 30 kilometres, from Nhulunbuy you turn right off Dhupuma Road onto a smaller dirt track that takes you to the various recreational areas.The Wathawuy stream is shallow in most spots with a sandy bottom, however, there are some deeper waterholes that are mostly located at the Goanna Lagoon side. This hidden oasis has small cascading rapids that trickle downstream and shady riverbanks lined with an abundance of native flora such as pandanus. There is easy access to the water at several spots, making Wathawuy a popular destination when visiting the region.Crystal clear water runs here all year round but during the monsoonal season Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation will sometimes close the area to limit environmental damage to the track and recreational areas due to excess rain and vehicle traffic.There are several day trip and overnight camping areas located at both the Latram River and Goanna Lagoon with picnic tables and fire pits available. There is one composting toilet facility available at both Goanna Lagoon and Latram River. The Dhimurru Recreational Areas welcome low impact camper trailers provided they are single axle, have no internal toilet/shower or waste management system and can be towed with a standard, single rear axle 4WD vehicle:
