Nature in Eden
Eden is a historic whaling town, ideal for a whale-watching tour. It’s built around a promontory that juts into Twofold Bay.
The southern right and humpback whales that migrate along the coast between May and November provide thrilling encounters for passengers aboard the whale-watching cruises that operate from Eden. Eden's Killer Whale Museum is the town's must-see attraction, a fascinating display of boats, whaling gear, photographs and nautical apparatus. Extending north and south of Eden, Ben Boyd National Park is a sensational tract of wild coast, beaches, wildflower meadows and eucalypt woodland.
The coast, from Eden to Merimbula, where the shales and conglomerates have been gnawed by the sea into arches and caves, is particularly dramatic
