Discover a town that lives up to its name
If you’re chasing paradise along the shores of the Sapphire Coast, you’ll find it in Eden. Set on the breathtaking Twofold Bay, Eden’s laid-back atmosphere, charming locals, and stunning natural surroundings make it a destination you’ll never want to leave.
Start by making your way to the Eden Lookout, where the best views of Twofold Bay are found. In the distance, marvel at the vast hinterland, as well as Boyd’s Tower—an elaborate structure crafted from sandstone that was once used as a lookout for whale spotting.
If adventure is calling your name, pay a visit to Ben Boyd National Park for an up-close look at Australia’s coastal wilderness. While you’re here, enjoy an unforgettable bush walk that makes its way through the forests and rugged headlands of the region before arriving on the sandy beach for some much-deserved relaxation. History buffs will want to spend time at the Eden Killer Whale Museum to learn the unbelievable story of the Killers of Eden—a pod of killer whales who worked alongside humans to help them hunt baleen whales. Before leaving, pay a visit to the skeletal remains of Old Tom—the leader of the Killers of Eden and a beloved cultural figure in the area.
Foodies will feel right at home in Eden, as the area is renowned for its award-winning cheese and dairy products, as well as for the fresh seafood served daily in the restaurants and cafés near Snug Cove. Before returning to your boutique hotel at sea, take time sample the signature Sydney Rock Oyster—the only true Australian oyster—which is well known for its creamy and sweet flavoring.
