The heritage villages of Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba snuggle below Gulaga (named Mount Dromedary by Captain James Cook in 1770) in the south of the Eurobodalla Shire. Gulaga is an Aboriginal site of spiritual significance to the Yuin people, the Traditional Owners of this land.
Gulaga was an active volcano 60 million years ago. Now completely inactive, the mountain dominates the Tilba district at about 1,000m in height.
Colonial settlers arrived in the mid 1800’s in the form of cedar cutters and later, dairy farms thrived on the rich volcanic soils. Gold was discovered in the late 1800’s and both villages experienced a boom period until the turn of the 20th century.
The Tilba district is a National Trust place of historic and special aesthetic significance and has retained dozens of heritage listed buildings. Central Tilba features a host of unique shops and galleries selling antiques, local hand-made wood product and crafts, leather goods, old fashioned sweets and toys, jewelry, art and fresh local produce including the famous Tilba Cheese range.
