A forested ancient volcano, Gulaga and the surrounding landscape are important for Aboriginal people and especially significant to the Yuin women of the South Coast of NSW. The steep track up the mountain was built in 1894 for gold miners. Take the gravel path between the café and car park in Tilba Tilba and continue up the mountain.
At ‘Halfway Rock’ the Battery Trail leads 1.6 kilometres off the main track around the side of the ridge 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 where magnificent giant granite tors are hidden in rainforest. Push on to the summit with its spectacular views to the coast.
Length is14 kilometres return, estimated five hours return. Graded hard, starting near the café in Tilba Tilba.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
Destination NSW acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the state’s first people and nations and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and occupants of New South Wales land and water.
