Eden, NSW

Situated on the magnificent waters of Twofold Bay, Eden is a town marked by its unusual history. Once a major whaling district in New South Wales for most of the 19th century and up until 1930, it is now a winter hotspot for the annual migration of whales between Antarctica and the warmer winter waters to the north.
Best time to whale watch (October – November) each year when whales are on their southern migration.


Twofold Bay also offers all weather diving and daily fishing trips or simply cruise the Bay, where dolphins, fairy penguins and whales may also be seen.

A visit would not be complete without a visit to the Killer Whale Museum, home to an extensive history of the magnificent creature that forms so much of Eden’s history.
