Eden is moving forward even in these uncertain times. There is a positive feeling in the town with businesses starting up and opening their doors, changing hands or moving to bigger premises. Planning is moving forward for the Eden Fitness Trail, Barclay Sports Ground upgrade, all inclusive playground, Mountain Bike Trails and the Port of Eden Marina project. The old Hotel Australasia site is progressing with the redevelopment of this site and the Welcome Centre at the wharf looks to be on track to be finished later this year.
