Eden Activities & Attractions

Activities & Attractions

Eden is a natural paradise awaiting exploration. Forest drives, bushwalking, sightseeing, exploring Ben Boyd National Park and Twofold Bay. The region is steeped in the tradition of the sea and you can see migrating whales between September and November or book your seat on a whale watching cruise.

Whales & Whale Watching
As well as charter vessels which take passengers to watch the whales at sea there are some great places to do shore based whale watching. To the south of Eden, Green Cape and South Head in the southern section of the Ben Boyd National Park are excellent vantage points to spot whales. Within Twofold Bay there are viewing platforms at the Rotary Park Lookout and at the eastern end of Bass Street.

The Seahorse Inn
Boydtown Eden VIC NSW
The principal relic of Ben Boyd's adventures is the Seahorse Inn which began construction in 1843 however it was abandoned in 1849 and for almost a century was left vacant.
In 1936 it was purchased by the Whiter Brothers who renovated it and added a second story.
In 1975 Bruce Lyon purchased the Seahorse Inn and in 2002 he closed the Inn and spent a considerable amount of time renovating and refurbishing the old hotel. He added the Brasserie and Conference rooms and transformed it into the beautiful hotel it is today. Accommodation is available. Open 7 days.
