Narooma to Tilba


Imagine the old carriages traversing the rugged roads and the old cycles creaking along with a basket out front filled with picnic goodies. Time really has stood still in the Tilba region.

The route is a mixture of sealed surface, gravel road, and gravel track (short sections). It has a number of short hills which gives it its moderate grading. The steepest section is when you make your way through the urban area of south Narooma. So don’t be put off!

This ride follows the Old Highway to the turn off to Central Tilba along Ridge Rd. which leads to the Tilba Punkalla Rd which takes you right into Central Tilba.

There are a number of other ways to get to Central Tilba from Narooma, this is the easiest route. The road is sealed for part of this route.

Central Tilba is a Heritage listed village full of wonderful crafts and food experiences. There are a number of cafes and a great cheese outlet. You might like to cycle on to Tilba.

Another option is to ride out to the Historic Tilba Cemetery right out on the coast. See details of these options below.

The route back to Narooma is the same as the way you came. However you do have the option of a terrific loop through Mystery Bay. Details of this option are also below.
