Eden Tourism & Travel
476 kilometres south of Sydney, Eden is a quiet former whaling town on Twofold Bay bounded by national park to the north and south and by woodland to the west. Fishing and timber is the towns main industries with whale watching becoming Edens key tourist attraction.
Killer Whale Museum
Although the actual whaling industry was abandoned many years ago, you can learn about it at Eden's fascinating Killer Whale Museum. The highlight of the exhibition is the skeleton of a killer whale known as 'Tom' who was responsible for herding other whales into Twofold Bay. He was found in the bay in 1930 and his skeleton has been successfully preserved. The building contains other items, details and booklets about this aspect of local history and also takes bookings for water cruises.
Ben Boyd National Park
Located close by to Eden, Ben Boyd National Park is a wonderful example of Australian coastal wilderness, incorporating natural forests and unspoilt beaches. Covering nearly 9000 hectares, the national park consists of a series of recessed beaches and headlands stretching north and south of Twofold Bay along a rugged and colourful coastline of cliffs, caves, jagged rocks and sweeping beaches.
The Ben Boyd National Park offers great fishing, swimming, diving, camping, canoeing, boating and bushwalking.
