Eden – the Coastal Wilderness on the Sapphire Coast

Perched on the edge of magnificent Twofold Bay – the third deepest natural habour in the Southern Hemisphere – is it any wonder Eden was once considered as a site for Australia’s national capital?

Eden has pristine undeveloped coastline, secluded sandy beaches, amazing wildlife, rainforest walks and tall tree forest drives and of course you can enjoy some of the world’s best whale watching between September and November each year.

Eden is a working fishing port with incredible beaches, National parks and fascinating history. Eden is located halfway between Sydney and Melbourne and just a few hours from Canberra, making Eden a perfect spot of your next getaway.

The heart of Eden and it’s history – is Twofold Bay.  It was the home to shore-based whaling stations and Old Tom, the legendary Killer Whale whose story can be learned at the Eden Killer Whale Museum or by taking the self guided Killer Whale Trail. Eden is also proud hosts of the Eden Whale Festival – 30 October to 1 November.

Eden on the Sapphire Coast of NSW, is beautifully uncivilised.
