Mount Dromedary (Gulaga) walk starts near La Galette café in Tilba Tilba. The Gulaga site is a place of cultural origin for the Yuin people, with the mountain regarded as a symbolic mother figure providing the basis for the Aboriginal peoples spiritual identity.
It’s about a 5 hour return trip on a mostly shaded on an old 4WD or light rail track with views along the walk however very little at the Summit.
As the drive is 2 hours each way we have explored the option of staying overnight prior to and after the walk. The nearest towns are Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba with a great cheese factory and historic little village which is definitely worth a stroll. There are lots of accommodation options in the area. Alternatively we have organised a deal at the Wallaga Lake BIG4 Holiday Park where you can stay Friday and Saturday night in a 2 bedroom Villa for roughly $250 total each couple if interested. Lakeside tent and caravan camping sites are also available. You will need to independently book in advance.
The Wallaga Lake Holiday Park also has the great Camel Rock Brewery Restaurant where we can grab a meal together on the Saturday night for those interested.
BIG4 Wallaga Lake is 5km North of Bermagui and about 9km from the start of the walk in Tilba Tilba.
