Say "cheese" and you'll probably end up here, the international award-winning cheese factory at Central Tilba. They came second in a competition in America with their sun dried tomato variety. I'm not a cheese eater by nature but I have to admit it tickled even my chocolate-oriented taste buds. However, these days (2013) it has been bought out by...more
Though this is a nursery it is also a public garden and an absolute delight to walk through.It also has a cafe named "Love At First Bite" and a souvenir shop.There is a small chapel in semi-ruined mode by a duck filled pond that caters for weddings should you be so desirous.If you are in to plants I definitely recommend you spend an hour or so...more
We were disappointed with the Cheese Factory, we had assumed we would see cheese being produced, but it was just a shop
admittedly the cheese tasted very nice and there was a great selection of gourmet foods to buy
Unique Suggestions: take a look at he old photographs around the walls, they show some lovely scenes from days gone by
Fun Alternatives: carry along the Princes Highway to Bega, there is a great Cheese Factory there, with a wonderful museum and you can actually go inside the factory, there is more about it on my Bega page
I dont think you could call the Princes Highway off the beaten path, but this little church [ which we found no mention of in any of the tourist literature ] was so lovely we had to take a lookits just a typical small NSW church, but its setting is so prettyits between Central Tilba and Tilba Tilba, on the Princes Highwaymore
After the tour of the buildings we were walking towards where the penguins come in. It's an excellent setting because you know that only those who came over on the boat with you will be there.It's also lovely to watch a sunset, especially with the wheeling, squealing seagulls seeking their nest for the night. There's no pattern in their flight,...more
Fishing, something Australia has in abundance.
While you're staying at Tilba Tilba you can go out on a fishing excursion from either Bermagui or Narooma and experience the fun I'm obviously having here.
This was actually taken at Eden, a little further south, but the species and fishing are the same here.
Equipment: You can bring your own or they supply it for you.
To be really honest, if you arent planning on doing any walking there isnt much to see in Tilba Tilba, the only thing is the Foxglove Spire Gardenswe were rather disappointed with the gardens, but perhaps we werent seeing them at their best, we would have appreciated more plant information and a clearer plan of the gardens, they are supposed to be...more
This is a lovely area to explore, the Princes Highway takes you from the coast to the wonderfully green countrysideNearby is Gulaga, named Mount Dromedary by Captain Cook who espied it from The Endeavour as its shape reminded him of a camel, it is actually the cone of an extinct volcano, nearby Little Dromedary [ Najanuga ]and Montague Island [...more
This small village [ population 80 ] has been preserved by the National Trust, a visit here is like taking a step backwards in time. The village was classified in 1974 and is now a centre for arts and crafts, and also is home to an award winning cheese factoryCentral Tilbas heyday was during the late 19th century when gold was mined at nearby...more
