General Information

Eden was originally settled by whalers and is now a fishing port and popular holiday resort town.
Eden was named in 1843, after the British Secretary of the Colonies, Baron Auckland, whose family name was Eden.

Eden is steeped in the tradition of the sea, fishing charters and bay cruises can be had at any time of the year with whale watching very popular between September and November. Get up close and personal with these gentle giants. You can also view visiting whales from the Rotary Park Lookout.

Whales fill a big part of Eden’s history and no visit is complete without visiting the Killer Whale Museum which is home to numerous pictorial displays, full sized artifacts, television presentations and the authentic skeleton of "Old Tom" leader of a killer whale pack in 1929.

Eden is one of the few places in the world where Humpback Whales visit on their migratory route. The waters are rich with krill and the whales stop to feed.

The Eden Killer Whale Museum sounds a siren when whales are in close proximity to vantage points around Twofold Bay.

A Brief History of Eden
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.
