Top Ten Things To Do In Eden

Top 10 Things To Do In Eden

My family has lived and worked in Eden for many years, and we think there is something truly special about this place. One of the top remarks from our guests is surprise at just how much there is to do in town. It was tough list to cut down, but here are my top 10 favourite activities in Eden.

Whale Watching

Whale watching is what we are known for here in Eden. Twofold Bay is recognised as one of the best places in Australia to go whale watching, and Eden is one of the few places worldwide where you can see Humpback whales feed. Join Cat Balou Cruises on a whale watching tour between September and November. 

A bonus of staying in a Heritage House apartment is the chance to catch a glimpse of the whales from your balcony.

Beowa National Park

One of my favourite things about Eden is that we are surrounded by the Beowa National Park. While there are many ways to enjoy the park by fishing, camping or swimming in its creeks, I prefer to see its natural splendour with a bush walk. The Pinnacles loop is my recommendation for those looking for a short accessible walk, but there are many options. Talk to us during your stay and we will be able to find your perfect walk.

Guided tours are avilable with Navigate Expeditions and Sapphire Coast guiding Co

Gravity Eden Mountain Biking

Discover Gravity Eden’s 58km+ gravity-fed mountain bike trails featuring premium, machine-built singletrack. Shuttle service by Sapphire Coast Shuttles, bike hire & tours through Navigate Expeditions, and equipment at Creative Lines Eden.

At Heritage House, we understand the needs of mountain bikers. We offer secure lockable bike storage and a convenient bike wash station. Plus, we provide ample parking for your convenience.

The Pambula River

Explore the serene Pambula River Mouth for a perfect family beach day at its mouth. For the adventurous, bring your kayak or join Navigate Expeditions on unique tours. Enjoy the Kayak and Shuck tour with a visit to sustainable oyster farm Broadwater Oysters. Alternatively, try their Aboriginal Cultural Tour or Pambula River tour, including morning tea. Surrounding national parks offer scenic walking trails.

Aslings Beach & Lake Curalo

Easily my favourite beach in Eden, Aslings Beach is 2 full kilometres of pristine coastline, enclosed by Lake Curalo and a natural rockpool. You can swim, surf, go exploring in rock pools or simply relax on the beach with a good book. During summer the beach is under patrol by lifeguards and there are basic amenities like toilets, fenced playground, skatepark, showers and picnic tables nearby all year round.

It’s also the ideal spot for a family-friendly biking adventure, with an off-road cycle and walkway along the beach and around Lake Curalo.

Eden Killer Whale Museum

To give you even more of a whale fix, visit the Eden Killer Whale Museum while visiting. A well- established Eden fixture, it has been in operation for over 85 years. Its many exhibitions will take you through the history of Eden and whales. Make sure you go see ‘Tom’, the full skeleton of a Killer Whale. I won’t ruin the trip by telling you all about him now but trust me it’s worth the visit. The best part is it’s only a 3 minute walk around the corner from Heritage House!

Light to Light Walk

Looking for a real outdoor adventure? You need to try the Light to Light walk. The hike starts at Boyd’s Tower and ends at Green Cape Lighthouse. It’s easily one of the most beautiful treks in NSW, showing off the full range of flora and fauna the national park has to offer. 

Book a hassle-free guided Light to Light Walk tour with Sapphire Coast Guiding Co or Navigate Expeditions, including accommodation, meals, transfers, and no heavy packs to carry! Enjoy pre and post-walk comfort with us.

Fresh Oysters and Seafood

When it comes to seafood, fresh is best. From Heritage House you can take a walk down to Snug Cove and visit South Coast Fish for fresh seasonal seafood locally caught. Venuture further to Sapphire Smokehouse for the best locally smoked seafood.

Savor fresh-from-the-farm oysters or join an oyster experience at Broadwater Oysters. Tour the farm, learn the art of shucking, and savor diverse toppings. Eden boasts fantastic restaurants and cafes, celebrated for their use of premium local produce. Don’t miss Wheelers in Pambula, a seafood institution.

North of Eden Gin School 

For those that are partial to a gin and tonic (like me) every now and again – the North of Eden Gin School is a must-do activity during your stay. In a three hour class you will learn about the distillation process and create your own bespoke gin that you will be able to take home. You will even be able to spend the class tasting the gins that the North of Eden is famous for. The afternoon is heaven for any lovers of gin.

Regional Markets 

Explore the vibrant regional markets near Eden, including Nethercote and Wyndham. Delight in a treasure trove of locally grown produce, handmade crafts, and unique artisanal goods. Immerse yourself in the bustling atmosphere, chat with friendly locals, and uncover hidden gems. These markets offer a perfect opportunity to support local businesses and experience the authentic flavours and creativity of the South Coast.
