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.

Mount Gulaga Foothills
Gulaga Mountain Tilba

An ancient volcano

It is hard to imagine now but over 60 million years ago, Gulaga was an active volcano and its peak was some 3 kms high. Now it is less than 1000m high but still dominates the Tilba landscape. It can be seen from almost everywhere in the region and there are often stunning views across many of the local lakes, like Corunna.

This impressively forested mountain was also the site of extensive gold mining which led to the development of the Tilba settlements. It is possible to walk up Mount Dromedary on most days with a track leaving from behind Pam’s Store in Tilba Tilba. Visitors should allow half a day to enjoy the walk and experience the wonderful rainforest near the summit. The track is only really steep in several areas and doesn’t require any special hiking equipment, just a strong pair of shoes. It is also a good idea to take some water and snacks to enjoy at the summit while taking in the views.

Little Dromedary Tilba

Najanuga

Najanuga (Little Dromedary) is the smaller – but still striking – rock outcrop just to the east of Gulaga and Tilba. It too is a stunning element in the regional landscape with excellent views from both Central and Tilba Tilba.
