Eden continues to boast some of the Sapphire Coast's best beaches, with small sandy bays ensuring protection from the elements. Eden is fast growing to be a favourite family destination, with open, spacious beaches, shady walking and bike trails, picnic areas and playgrounds for the kids.
There is also no better place to grab fresh seafood right off the back of a trawler. Head down to Snug Cove and snavel tonight’s dinner as it comes in. South of Red Point off Ben Boyd National Park you can explore the Tasman Hauler and Henry Bolte, two huge ocean going tugs which were deliberately sunk for divers. The tugs attract numerous fish species and provide unique photographic opportunities. Merimbula Diving Lodge offers diving trips in the area.
If water is not your thing then head off to the Eden Killer Whale Museum. The museum provides an informative and entertaining afternoon tour of history. Check out cheeky ‘Old Tom’ and Eden’s whaling history. The South Coast Marine Discovery Centre is another great attraction worth investigating. A not for profit organisation the centre offers school holiday activities that help kids (and adults) learn about our beautiful coastline.
Eden is a haven for fishing and boating lifestyle where you can drop a line in fish friendly waters, sea kayak amongst the wildlife or blow the cobwebs away with a good sail around the harbour. Just watch out for cruise ships.
Eden is home of the Eden Whale Festival, an annual event held toward the end of October. Join in on the celebrations and help celebrate the humpbacks southern migration to the Antarctic.
A relaxed aquatic lifestyle is waiting for you on the far South Coast and Eden’s location close to attractions, golf courses, walking trails and National Parks makes it a perfect base.
