The Dromedary Hotel is a gorgeous old country pub dating from 1895 located in the beautiful National Trust village of Central Tilba, on the far south coast of NSW.

Surrounded by unspoilt Australian bush, in the shadow of the dramatic Mount Gulaga, ‘The Drom’ is a must-visit destination for anyone touring the unspoilt Eurobodalla region.


Where the lush green mountains of the Gulaga National Park meet the golden sands of the Pacific, sit on the verandah and soak up the ambience of Tilba's most iconic building!

The Drom is under new ownership since June 2018

Open 7 days from 11am til late




Grab at spot at the bar or take your drink out onto the front porch at the ‘top of town’.
Pose for the paparazzi at Bullshit Corner, one of the most photographed spots in town!

Enjoy Australian beers and wine, as well as a broad selection of international and Australian spirits.
Our six taps currently feature Resch’s, Carlton Draught, Toohey’s Old, Great Northern mid-strength, Kosciuszko Pale Ale and our very own Drom Ale, brewed locally. In all, choose from over 20 beers and ales.

We offer excellent wines from some of Australia’s best-known wine-producing regions. We’re constantly revisiting our wine list, adding new labels every 6 weeks or so. And we keep our prices reasonable, making great wines accessible to all.

We’re massive gin fans at the Drom! There’s always at least 10 to choose from, including home-made rhubarb-infused and Buddha’s Hand-infused gins. While most of our gins are Australian, we also like to add a couple that we’ve collected on our travels. All are served with loads of ice, Capi tonic water and garnished with fresh botanicals.

We also have a very carefully selected single malt whisky offer.

We believe in bringing the best of regional Australia to our customers. As well as many of the old favourites we are always trialing new and interesting new products from NSW and further afield.
