Eden situated on the magnificent harbour of Twofold Bay is steeped in the traditions of the sea and started its life a whaling town. Today Eden is the main port on the south coast and a major fishing town. Although whaling is no longer practised the coastline is a whale watching wonderland playing host to these magnificent creatures on their annual migration south during the months of September to November. Many species of whale (Humpbacks, Southern Rights, Minke, Blue) are sighted just offshore during this period, some venturing all the way into the bay.
Charter boats offer deep sea fishing and diving expeditions all year round.
Eden Killer Whale Museum has many fascinating exhibits of Eden's past and houses the skeleton of "Old Tom" a legend Killer whale in his day.
