About Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba
Explore the Urban Conservation Area that includes Central Tilba and Tilba Tilba in the stunning Eurobodalla countryside on the South Coast of NSW. The area is rich in heritage, unique shops, woodland gardens and local produce, and is surrounded by natural beauty.
The Tilba region's villages are located at the foothills of the sacred Gulaga, also known as Mount Dromedary, an extinct volcano that holds spiritual significance to the local Aboriginal Yuin people. The mountain's walking track - created in 1894 for gold miners - takes you through old mining residences and leads to stunning views of the surrounding rainforest and coast.
Central Tilba is a picture-perfect country town, and keeping the village lively is the collection of craft workers and artisans who have taken up residence. Visit Passionfish Candles and admire the local candle maker's natural soy candles. The town is also home to the famous ABC Cheese Factory that welcome visitors for tastings of the popular Tilba Club Cheese and their large range of honey.
Relax and unwind in Tilba Tilba, a pretty, rural town with great character and wonderful gardens, including the Foxglove Spires Garden, a luscious 1.5 hectare woodland garden built around a farm cottage. Visit the Gumnut Hideaway Gallery and admire the town's unique art scene inspired by the region's natural surroundings.
