Begin your tour in Tilba Tilba on one of the regions oldest farms. The farm is located at the base of Gulaga, the Mother Mountain, incredibly sacred to the local Yuin community. Spend the morning here with a local Yuin Nation guide and learn all about the culture and ancient stories relating to Gulaga and its importance to the spiritual identity of the Yuin people. This experience is immersive, transformational, authentic and spiritual. No trip to the Narooma and Tilba area is complete without understanding the connection to country through the telling of these stories.
Continue to Central Tilba for a historical walking tour of Central Tilba and learn about the mining days in the 1800s and the unique history of this National Trust Village. You will have some free time to browse in Central Tilba's exquisite boutique shops. Enjoy a Tilba cheese and local ale tasting. The Tilba Real Dairy is world-famous for its award-winning cheeses, milk and yoghurt.
Lunch today will be at the Tilba Valley Winery where you will enjoy a wine tasting of their cool climate wines. The Tilba Valley Winery is nestled on 10 acres of established vines on stunning Corunna Lake between Narooma and Tilba. After the wine tasting choose from the A La Carte Menu for a delicious lunch with a complimentary glass of wine or beer on us.
This is one of the area’s best kept secrets. From the minute you arrive at the winery the relaxed atmosphere and the views over the Corunna Lake make this tour one of our most popular experiences. (Enjoy live music every Saturday and Sunday from 12 o'clock).
Return to Narooma around 4 pm.
