"Eden - Learn about our whaling history."

Eden is the most southerly port in NSW before crossing the border into Vic. Once a whaling town Eden is home to a large Killer Whale museum offering information about the towns whaling history. Now whale watching is an industry unto itself. The timber industry is still alive and kicking though and visitor information centre at the Chip mill gives the visitor an insight into this unpopular industry. Eden is a very tourist orientated town and there are many shops to service the needs of the local and visitor alike. Swimming, surfing diving and fishing are popular in summer. Golf tennis and bowls, squash, bushwalking and hiking are all available pastimes with some spectacular scenery along some of the coastal walks. Stay in the caravan park, motels or hotels in the town, with restaurants and cafes for those who like to eat out.

"A friendly small town"

Eden is a very beautiful town that is located on the Sapphire Coast of Sydney. It is a five hours drive south of Sydney. This beautiful, quiet and tranquil town is located in between Sydney and Melbourne. The streets are lined with trees and you can easily hear the lapping of the waves from the street. There shops, cafes, a supermarket and chemist on the main street of Eden.

I was in Eden about two years ago and was instantly mesmerised by the beauty of the place. My friends and I stayed at a campsite and enjoyed our summer days either at the beach or the RSL. The locals who we spoke to in Eden were very friendly. Many of them have decided on a sea change and moved from the big cities to Eden in order to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. I would highly recommend Eden as a place for retirement or those wanting a sea change.
