Eden - Cities, Towns and Localities
Eden is located on picturesque Twofold Bay, the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and enclosed to the north and south by national parks and by woodland to the west. Part of the beautiful Sapphire Coast, it is the last major town before crossing the Victorian border.

In a region that includes Ben Boyd National Park, Nadgee Nature Reserve and Wonboyn Lake, it is an ideal place to enjoy such natural beauty, taking in bushwalks and scenic forest drives, as well as the unspoilt beaches. If that is not enough, Eden has a long history with the whaling industry, from the early harpooning period to the present day delights of ‘whale watching’.

Check out the many listed attractions and tours.
