Mount Tilga……..the centre of New South Wales Places of interest 1 Comment

About a 8klm drive North of Condoblin on the Melrose rd, you’ll find Mount Tilga.
Originally known for the geographical centre of New South Wales but there’s still a little debate about that one! with Geoscience Australia saying it’s else where.
Honestly though, trying to establish the centre of a state that’s oddly shaped, no matter the answer, is going to surface some debate.

Whether it is or not…………for us it was worth the short climb to the summit even with all the kids and dogs in tow!
A dry and dusty landscape, but just sitting up there soakingĀ  inĀ  the panoramic 360 degree views over the Lachlan Valley was something special.

You can drive up part of the way and this is what we did! Then parked the van, walked and climbed the rest of the way to the summit
