There are plenty of things to do in Eden — from relaxing on beautiful sandy beaches to enjoying the tastes of the local produce. Eden is one of the best whale-watching spots in Australia during the annual southerly migration between August and early November.

Twofold Bay is the third-deepest natural harbour in the Southern Hemisphere and has had a long association with whales. Explore the story of the orca Old Tom at the Eden Killer Whale Museum, or take the self-drive Killer Whale Trail, an intriguing trip into the past to a time when whales were hunted for oil.

You can continue your close encounters with whales with Cat Balou Cruises, and make sure you check out the annual Eden Whale Festival in October, which celebrates the southern migration when humpback whales stop to feed on schools of krill and pilchards in Twofold Bay.

Snorkel or scuba dive in Twofold Bay with Dive Eden and spot blue groupers and weedy sea dragons.  Other adventure tours in the region include kayaking with Navigate Expeditions and fishing with Freedom Charters.

After all that adventure, you’ll definitely need to refuel, so make sure you sample the local produce at Eden’s great selection of local eateries.
