Tilba Tilba is protected by a National Heritage listing; the town was settled mostly during the gold rush years of the 1890s and 1900s and today retains many fine Victorian timber buildings. The town has a pretty setting at the base of Gulaga (Mt Dromedary) which can be accessed from Tilba Tilba.
Gulaga is the highest point in the area; named Mt Dromedary by Lieutenant James Cook being the shape of a dromedary camel. The summit has strangely-shaped granite outcrops and significant tors being a culturally significant site for the Yuin people. Towards the summit Rainforest species thrive in several places on the upper tiers of the mountain and you can see out to Montague Island off shore.
Closer to town is Foxglove Spires, a luscious woodland garden built around a farm cottage. The seasonal gardens are simply stunning, with fragrant wisteria, lavender and an arbour of Manchurian pear trees.
