Gulaga and the surrounding landscape are important for Aboriginal people and especially significant to the Yuin women of the South Coast of NSW. An extinct volcano rising 806 metres above sea level, the steep track up the mountain was built in 1894 for gold miners. Take the gravel path from Pam’s Store in Tilba Tilba and continue up the mountain.
At ‘Halfway Rock’ the Battery Trail leads 1.6km off the main track around the side of the ridge to the foundations of the mine manager’s residence. Return to the main track and 30 minutes later you should reach ‘The Saddle’ - a great rest spot. Push on to the summit with its spectacular views to the coast, along the way enjoying a magical rainforest and variety of birdlife.
