Eden Activities & Attractions
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.

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.
Established in 1931, is one of the oldest museums in NSW, and records for posterity this incredible battle between intrepid men in rowboats, armed only with hand harpoons and the leviathans of the sea. The whalemen were, however, assisted by a pod of killer whales and the museum contains the unique story and the skeleton of the most famous of the killer whales "Old Tom".
The skeleton is the only one on public display in the southern hemisphere.
