Eden Australia Accommodation
From orcas to humpbacks, Eden on the NSW South Coast is one of the best spots in Australia to watch majestic whales on their annual migration. Spot whales in the sparkling waters of Twofold Bay, a deep natural harbour, and from spectacular lookouts in beautiful Ben Boyd National Park.
On the edge of beautiful Twofold Bay, Eden is one of the best locations in Australia for whale watching during the whales' annual migration between May and November. You can also enjoy stunning beaches, sparkling blue waters, spectacular wilderness, wonderful adventure tours and intriguing heritage in this picturesque area on the far NSW South Coast.
The third-deepest natural harbour in the Southern Hemisphere, Twofold Bay has a long history with whales. Discover the story of orca Old Tom at the Eden Killer Whale Museum. The self-drive Killer Whale Trail is an intriguing trip into the past when whales were hunted for oil and cosmetics.
You’ll find plenty of shoreline vantage points around Twofold Bay and along the coast in Ben Boyd National Park for spotting migrating whales. Green Cape lookout is a popular spot. The exhilarating Light to Light walk connects Green Cape Lighthouse with the 1847-built Boyds Tower on the edge of Twofold Bay.
For close encounters with whales, join Cat Balou and other whale-watching cruises. The annual Eden Whale Festival is in October, when you can spot whales in large numbers in Twofold Bay. Learn more about whales and other sea creatures in the Sapphire Marine Discovery Centre at Eden Wharf in Snug Cove.
