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.
A particularly beautiful area of the NSW Far South Coast originally settled by whalers and now a fishing port and a popular, but relatively undeveloped, holiday resort town. Eden, located 476km south of Sydney, is the last town of any significance before crossing the border into north eastern Victoria. With a population of just over 3,000, it is situated 50m above sea level upon undulating land on a point that juts out into Twofold Bay. This idyllic coastal town is bounded to the north and south by National Park and by woodland to the West.
