Coastal Wilderness on the Sapphire Coast

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?

Autumn in Eden is stunning. Our sapphire blue waters are still warm, the weather is agreeable and our secluded coastal wilderness is yours to explore. This is also the time of year that fishing is at its best. Located halfway between Sydney and Melbourne and just a few hours from Canberra Eden is a perfect spot for your getaway!

Killer Whale Trail

Take a day trip back in time. When boats were made of wood and men were made of steel!

Read More

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 or by taking the self guided Killer Whale Trail. Be sure to be in town 2nd, 3rd & 4th November for this year's Eden Whale Festival.

Eden is still is a working port, so drive down in the early morning to scenic Snug Cove 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.

Explore Ben Boyd National Park both north and south of Eden along with the State Forests that surround the town.    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.
