Even when it is whale free however, there are many other aspects of the bay that are of interest. You can wander along the wharves and watch the trawlers unload their catches; you can visit historic Boydtown, the Old Davidson Whaling Station, Boyd's Tower or the woodchip mills and forest boundaries on the southern shores.




Boydtown on the western shore of Twofold Bay contains the historic buildings and tower erected last century by Ben Boyd during the whaling boom in the region.
