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 1st to 3rd 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.
