Eden, situated on the deep harbour of Twofold Bay, is rich in fishing and whaling history and remains a fishing town, while whaling has now become 'whale-watching' one of the key tourist attractions in the town. Eden is a picturesque and quiet town and offers a wide variety of waterway, forest and mountain attractions.
Although the actual whaling industry was abandoned many years ago, you can learn about it at Eden's fascinating Killer Whale Museum. As well as this you can often catch the wondrous sight of whales frolicking off our shores on their twice yearly migration. You can enjoy this fascinating pastime from the mainland or from a boat, including those equipped for whale watching cruises by local operators.
