A place of spiritual significance
The majestic Gulaga…
The Tilba Region nestles beneath the majestic Gulaga (Mount Dromedary). This mountain is a site of great spiritual significance to the local Yuin people and in May 2006 the NSW Government formally handed back Gulaga National Park ownership and management to the Aboriginal communities on the Far South Coast.
Gulaga has been described by Aboriginal people as the place of ancestral origin for all Yuin people, while Gulaga itself symbolises the mother and provides a basis for Aboriginal spiritual identity, for Aboriginal women and men.
