Snug Cove, Eden is where three wharves unite within one of the most stunning coastal vistas of NSW. Set in a working port under the shadow of Balawan (Mount Imlay), Snug Cove harbours a fleet of fishing, charter and recreational vessels and is the southernmost deepwater harbour in NSW.

Watching the action from the harbour's edge you'll see boats come and go, the day’s catch unloaded and fishermen working on their nets and tending to their boats. You are welcome to wander along the wharf and check out the boats or drop in a line. Or just sit back and appreciate the spectacular seaside vista with iconic Mount Imlay in the distance.

Charters depart Snug Cove for fishing trips, diving, whale watching and coastal discovery cruises in Twofold Bay and beyond.

Drop into the Eden Welcome Centre for tips on exploring the region and enjoy the interpretive installations and foreshore Maritime History Pathway.

During the cruise season from October to March, there are a growing number of cruise liners in port, with passengers eager to experience Eden and our coastal wilderness.

In 1828, Thomas Raine established the first shore based whaling station on mainland Australia. A small pier was erected by Raine, as well as slab huts for a home and the whaling try-works. The first wharf built for shipping was built in 1860.
