Enjoy a serene weekend in the quaint village of Central Tilba, staying in the beautiful bed and breakfast Tilba Two Story and exploring some of the walking trails within the nearby Gulaga National Park.

Perched above the picturesque village of Tilba, Mount Gulaga (previously known as Mount Dromedary) is an extinct volcano that is one of the highest mountains on the South Coast of New South Wales. Due to its almost 1000m peak, Mount Gulaga can be seen from many vantage points across the Eurobodalla.

Mount Gulaga and the entire Gulaga National Park is of high spiritual importance to the local Yuin people and in 2006 it was handed back to be managed by its traditional Aboriginal owners.
Workers built a track up Mount Gulaga in times when gold was to be found and miners used the track as means to access their digs. This steep track is now widely used by day-trippers and serious walkers alike to access the stunning views from Mount Gulaga’s peak, of the coast of southern New South Wales. While the 11 kilometre return walk is strenuous and graded as “hard”, the beautiful surrounding rainforest and abundant native wildlife provides plenty of welcomed distractions and photo opportunities along the way.

The return walk starts at the back of Pam’s Store and should be completed in about five hours. After a vigorous day of walking, unwind with some well-deserved Mrs Jamieson’s Tilba Fudge on the balcony of your guest room at Tilba Two Story. The perfect end to a perfect day in the stunning Eurobodalla.
