Eden is one of the best whale-watching spots in Australia between May and early November. Located on the south coast near the Victorian border, Eden’s natural beauty can be enjoyed all year around.

Extending north and south of Eden, Ben Boyd National Park is a tract of rugged coast, beaches, wildflower meadows and eucalypt woodland.

For whale watchers, there are many popular lookouts along Twofold Bay, whale watching cruises and a Killer Whale Museum to enjoy. Other things to do in Eden include exploring sandy beaches, fishing, kayaking, bushwalking and snorkelling.
