Beautifully uncivilised

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

In the Autumn, our coastal weather is pleasant, the water is at its warmest and our beaches become your own secluded paradise. The fishing in Autumn is world class and people come from all over Australia to drop a line in our bay and estuaries.

The heart and soul of Eden – and its history – is Twofold Bay. It was home to shore-based whaling stations and Old Tom, the legendary killer whale whose story can be learned at the Eden Killer Whale Museum.

Eden is still is a working port, so drive down in the early morning and watch the boats bring home their catch. Chances are you will see your dinner before it meets your plate! You’ll probably never eat fresher.

Still an important Port, Eden now welcomes the world with visiting cruise ships.

Eden is very much a town where olden days and modern times cross over. It’s a town whose history was bound up with timber cutting – and still is. Where hunters came in search of the world’s largest mammals – and still do. Nowadays, though, they come armed with cameras, not spears and harpoons, but they are just as richly rewarded.

If you hanker for even more tranquillity than offered by Eden, Wonboyn could be is the answer. Tucked between Ben Boyd National Park and Nadgee Nature Reserve, it empties into the stunning Disaster Bay.

Nearby Nadgee Nature Reserve is one of a handful of truly natural world wilderness areas. If you have children with you, the National Parks and Wildlife Service offer a range of school holidays so they can learn to appreciate how special it is.

Eden on the Sapphire Coast, it’s beautifully uncivilised.

Killers in Eden Documentary

Eden is a region rich in spectacular, natural beauty. Think secluded beaches, serene lakes and verdant rainforest. But perhaps one of the coast’s most intriguing historical marine inhabitants was the orca, or as it’s widely known, the killer whale.

Incredibly, Eden’s Twofold Bay is the only place – worldwide – where there has been documented evidence of orcas working in co-operation with man to hunt smaller whales. The orcas herded the whales into the bay and even into particular whaling stations. They would then alert whalers of their arrival by splashing and flop tailing. The orcas would also herd whales onto the beach, where they were an important food source for the local Indigenous people.
