SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
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 migration between May 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 or learn more about whales and other sea life at the Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre at Eden Wharf in Snug Cove. Check out the annual Eden Whale Festival in November, 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. Join the experts from the Marine Discovery Centre on a guided snorkel tour of Snug Cove. Other adventure tours in the region include kayaking with Kiah Wilderness Tours and fishing with Freedom Charters.
