Summary:A small metamorphic and dyke complex of Ordovician age is exposed near Tilba Tilba on the S coast of New South Wales just E of the Cretaceous Mt Dromedary igneous complex. Mainly tonalites and granodiorites, the dykes intrude metaturbidites and spotted pelitic schists which have been tightly folded and crenulated in two episodes. The occurrence is the youngest and easternmost of high-grade metamorphic rocks in the Lachlan Fold Belt. [W.D.B.]
