Established around the cheese factory that was built here in 1891, all but one of Central Tilba’s buildings were erected in the same decade, giving the village its character and distinctive sense of unity.
The town is a clutch of weatherboard buildings perched on a rippling green ridge, set against the towering peak of Mt Dromedary.
