The Port of Eden is the classic Southern Gateway to the Sapphire Coast. A spectacular blend of golden sandy beaches and crystal blue waters enhanced by a lush and inviting backdrop of National Parks and forests.
Renowned for its endless supplies of fresh fish, the Port of Eden has long been considered the seafood capital of the region.
Sweeping Twofold Bay is the quiet host to whales in Spring. Between September and November each year, whale watchers charter boats to see these majestic creatures on their annual migration to and from the Antarctic. Humpbacks, Southern Right, Minke & Killer Whales cruise in for a feed and a catch-up.
While the days of the whaling industry are long gone, their stories are preserved high and dry in Eden's Killer Whale Museum, Davidson Whaling Station, Kiah Inlet, historic Boydtown and Seahorse Inn. All well worth a visit.
There are several whale watching (October and November) offered at the main wharf, at other times you will see dolphins, fur seals and seabirds
