Eden Killer Whale Museum

The Eden Killer Whale Museum has been in operation for over 85 years and is a publicly owned facility.

The building is situated overlooking the Pacific Ocean where, in the season, whales may be seen from the various vantage points.

Exhibitions about the shore-based whaling operations from Twofold Bay during the 1800s and early 1900s include a full skeleton of 'Tom' the Killer Whale, legendary Orca. He led a pack of killer whales in the hunt for baleen whales on their southward migration each year.

There is also an exhibition relating to the involvement of local indigenous Australians in shore-based whaling. There is a full scale model of the type of whale boat used in whale chases out of Twofold Bay.

Exhibitions depicting the local fishing and timber industry tell of the extremely important role that these industries have had and continue to play in the Eden community.
