Time to relax!

Nestled at the base of the imposing Gulaga/Mt Dromedary, Tilba is only minutes drive from the popular South Coast fishing and tourism towns of Narooma and Bermagui.

  • Tilba is also only just over an hours drive (south) from Batemans Bay and (north) from Merimbula – both great coastal holiday destinations.
  • From the major capitals, Tilba is around 370kms south of Sydney along the Princes Highway (which makes it a 4½-5 hour drive).
  • From the national capital of Canberra, Tilba is about a three hour drive via either Batemans Bay or Cooma/Bega.
  • From Melbourne the trip to Tilba is about 700km and usually takes the best part of a whole day’s drive.

There are airports serving the area at Moruya, 40 minutes drive north, and at Merimbula (see map). Both have a number of flights daily to and from Melbourne and Sydney. Canberra airport has regularly scheduled flights from Singapore and New Zealand, opening up this wonderful coastline to the international market.
