Eden Information

Eden in New South Wales is a small coastal town with a population of about 4,500 people situated on the beautiful waters of Twofold Bay.

The town was discovered in February 1798 when George Bass took shelter from bad weather with his whaling ship. Later in 1828, John Raine established a whaling station in Eden. Today whaling has stopped and Eden has become a hot spot for tourists to see the whales on their annual migration (October to November).

Having plenty of history the Eden Killer Whaling Museum is a not to miss place for any tourist. The museum was established in 1936 when whale hunting ceased and has always been a popular tourist attraction. Throughout history the killer whales that were seen off Eden were documented and named individually so why not pop in and see Big Jack, Humpy and Hooky just to name a few.

Fishing is still a big industry for Eden today. Visitors can enjoy a fishing charter, however if you are on a lean budget then there’s plenty of jetty’s, rocks and beach fishing spots throughout the area. There are also many other water sports to enjoy like swimming, sailing, surfing and diving all year round.

If you are a nature lover, then Ben Boyd National Park nearby will offer you the perfect bushwalking experience. The park is very close by and is a prime example of an Australian coastal wilderness. There are stacks of unspoilt beaches and natural forests for you to discover.

A scenic lookout point not to be missed while visiting is Mount Imlay. From here you can see for miles and miles along the Sapphire coastline and the spot is very picturesque. So what are you waiting for? Dust off the old picnic basket, stock up and come visit this scenic viewpoint.
