With so many amazing attractions to be enjoyed while you are here, such as whale watching, fishing, diving, snorkelling, National Parks and waterways, it's not hard to see why Eden in southern New South Wales has been so popular for holiday makers for so many years. This stunning seaside resort town on the Central Coast of New South Wales, exudes an ambience that is hard to deny.
Many years ago, whaling in Eden was one of the main exports but today you can, fortunately, only see remnants of a time past by at the maritime museum or Killer Whale Museum. Learn about the fascinating history and see the historic sites at Twofold Bay and Boydtown port that where built back in the mid 1800's. Take a walk up to the top of Boyd's Tower which was built in its day for whaler's to spot their potential catch or wander through the Old Davidson Whaling Station and Seahorse Inn.
Today many people flock to Eden to see the playful creatures frolicking in their natural environment on one of the whale watching vessels that make their way out to the whale each day during the months of June through to October as they make their way up the coast on the migratory path to warmer waters with their young. Spend a day with these awesome creatures, have a wonderful lunch out on the boat and you will have amazing memories that you will cherish forever.
Along with whale watching, the avid fisherman, scuba diver and snorkeler all love Eden as well for its many opportunities that it provides, both on top and underneath the water level. Launch your own boat if you have one, at one of the boat rams or jump on board one of the fishing, diving or snorkelling charters that can be booked while you are here. With the Pacific Ocean holding many delights and wonders it is sure to be a day that you will remember.
