Set in the magnificent Twofold Bay, Eden’s a sleepy place where often the only bustle is down at the wharf when the fishing boats come in. Around the surrounding area are stirring beaches, national parks and wilderness areas. Migrating humpback whales and southern right whales pass so close to the coast that experts consider this to be one of Australia's best whale-watching locations and the reason behind the region's nickname, the Humpback Highway.
Take time to see the Green Cape Light Station, marvel at the wilderness and beauty that surrounds it, hike all or part of the ‘Light to Light’ walk and muse on the area’s connection to Australia’s new saint, Mary MacKillop. For some natural solitude, discover Wonboyn further south, tucked between Ben Boyd National Park and Nadgee Nature Reserve, where the lake empties into the stunning Disaster Bay.
