Mount Gulaga (Mount Dromedary) Walk

Mount Gulaga, was formally known as Mount Dromedary. Gulaga as she is findly known as, is a stunning example of an extinct volcano that rises 797 metres above sea level.

The mountain and the surrounding area are significant to the Yuin people, particularly the women. Gulaga has been described by Aboriginal people as the place of ancestral origin for all Yuin people, while the mountain itself symbolises the mother and provides a basis for Aboriginal spiritual identity.

The steep track up the mountain was built in 1894 for gold miners. Take the gravel path between the shop and car park in Tilba Tilba and continue up the mountain. At 'Halfway Rock' the trail leads 1.6 kilometres off the main track to the foundations of the mine manager's residence. Return to the main track and 30 minutes later you should reach 'The Saddle' - a great rest spot. Push on to the summit with its spectacular views to the coast, along the way enjoying a beautiful rainforest teeming with life.
