TILBA TILBA AND CENTRAL TILBA
Tilba Tilba, although small, was the hub of the area in the late 1890's!
One of Henry Jefferson's sons (Richard) developed Tilba Tilba and the other (Samuel) decided to develop another community in 1895 just a mile and a half down the road, supporting the ABC cheese factory. Central Tilba and Tilba Tilba competed for local business, with businesses in the Tilba's supplying various goods to Narooma, Corunna and Bermagui.
The dairying and gold mining history of the area was what drew people to settle, and it provides a particularly interesting backdrop to the stories of how the villages developed.
Both townships today have been maintained in their original late 1800's style and businesses are aligned with the tourism market. There are many things to investigate and it is an easy day pottering through the villages!!
This is of course in addition to the long standing natural and aboriginal history of the area. It is easy to immerse yourself in the culture or the geology or the flora and fauna.
Come and visit!
The best way is to come and visit! We are located 45 minutes north of Bega and around an hour south of Batemans Bay in the beautiful countryside underneath Mount Gulaga.
