Gulaga National Park

Gulaga National Park, Tilba Tilba NSW 2546

Gulaga (Mt Dromedary) and the surrounding landscape have great spiritual significance to local Aboriginal people, particularly Aboriginal women. The park also incorporates the former Wallaga Lake National Park. In May 2006, the park was handed back to its traditional Aboriginal owners in an historic agreement signed by New South Wales Government and the Yuin people. The mountain is an isolated volcanic core rising 797 metres above sea level and towering over the historical villages of Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba. Viewed from the sea the mountain resembles a dromedary camel. The walking track starts from Tilba Tilba and the walk to the top and return is approximately 14 kilometres and takes about 5 hours. The rainforest is a spectacular sight with pinkwood and sassafras trees draped with long green moss and lichen. The forest floor is covered with fragile ground ferns and mosses.

Pam's Store, Old Highway, Tilba Tilba NSW 2546
Mount Gulaga is an extinct volcano rising 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 from Pam's Store 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.
