Local Attractions

Eden boasts some of the best whale watching points on the East Coast, as we are on the whale migration route. Sometimes whales rest in the safe waters of Twofold Bay, the third deepest natural harbour in the southern hemisphere and deepest natural harbour in Australia. So famous around the world that international cruising companies now call into the spectacular harbour of Twofold Bay to see the wonders that we call home.

Eden offers unspoilt natural beauty surrounded by Ben Boyd National Park and situated on the shores of Twofold Bay with its breath-taking beaches, rugged landscape of sheltered golden sandy beaches, crystal blue water, rocky headlands and open surf beaches. This old whaling town has so much to offer. Bush walking, diving, fishing, fishing on local game boats, cruising Twofold Bay on the catamaran “Cat Balou” where you can see dolphins, "Sammie the seal" and our picturesque, rugged coastline. September through to November is the Whale Watching Season with whales migrating through our beautiful harbour and you can watch the dolphins play in the ocean. Eden’s urban settlement commenced in 1843 and whale ships have been operating since 1791. Currently Eden has a population of 3043 people.
