Nestled in the foothills of the majestic Gulaga (Mount Dromedary), the Tilba region is one of Eurobodalla's most popular drawcards.
The enchanting little village of Tilba Tilba sits at the base of Gulaga, a short drive south of Central Tilba. Its fertile soils and lush pastures are the perfect dairy farming country and an exquisite drive.
Venture through a stunning 3.5 acres of romantic woodland garden and visit the gorgeous nursery. Cute antique and gift stores are worth a visit for their charm and lovely wares. Wonderful heritage accommodation can be found in the Tilba region. The many stylish B & Bs, guesthouses and cosy cottages have hospitality to match the views. A significant landmark for the southern half of the Eurobodalla region, Gulaga was named Mount Dromedary by Captain Cook in 1770. Gulaga had great spiritual and cultural significance to the Yuin people, whose descendants today still hold the mountain in special reverence.
It is a truly magical experience to walk Gulaga. A track leaves from behind the general store and will take you through amazing rainforest to the summit. Allow the best part of a day to enjoy your walk. For more information call 1800 802 528 or visit Narooma and Batemans Bay Visitor Centres for local knowledge and maps of the area.
