The town of Eden, on the sparkling Sapphire Coast, is nestled amongst beautiful national parks and rugged coastline, with sandy beaches, azure-coloured sea and stunning walking tracks. Its picturesque harbour, Twofold Bay, is the third-deepest natural harbour in the world and makes for a spectacular stop on the far South Coast.
There’s plenty to do in Eden, including bushwalking, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and snorkelling. Once a whaling centre, it’s now one of the best whale watching spots in Australia during the annual migration. Tourists flock to Eden to catch a glimpse of the pods migrating south every Spring.
The wharf at Eden was recently extended and can now welcome larger vessels, with passengers disembarking straight onto the dock. Some very large ships still need to anchor in Twofold Bay and bring passengers to shore in tender boats. The terminal is close to the centre of town and all the main attractions are within easy walking distance.
