Visit the Davidson Whaling Station, ponder on the legacy of Boydtown, delve into countless centuries of indigenous habitation or stand at the spot in Snug Cove where Bass and Flinders came ashore in 1798. Our heritage is as diverse as it is interesting.

Spot the whales up close and personal

One of the nation’s deepest natural harbours, Twofold Bay provides safe access for the recreational fisherman and provides excellent opportunities to enjoy some of the world’s best whale watching between September and November each year.

Experience Snug Cove Snug Cove, Eden, is where three wharves unite at one of the most stunning coastal vistas of NSW. It is the hub for vessels that enter the crystal clear waters of Twofold Bay, the southernmost deep water harbour of NSW. Capture the action of a working port

Eden is renowned for its excellent deep-sea fishing with a fleet of fishing trawlers operating daily from Snug Cove. Get up close to visiting yachts, tug boats and fishing vessels at Snug Cove. Wander along the wharves and catch a glimpse of local fishermen unloading their catch before preparing it for Sydney and Melbourne markets. Observe as they clean mussels, mend their nets and sort through tonnes of fresh fish. Port Authority of NSW is the manager of the Port and provides the infrastructure for large-scale shipping from Snug Cove. 4

Australian Border Force plays a vital role in managing border security and integrity of trade.

Eden welcomes the world as an emerging major cruise destination During the cruise season from October to March, there is a growing number of visiting overseas and domestic cruise liners with passengers eager to experience Australia’s Coastal Wilderness. Eden Breakwater Wharf Extension Project funded by Federal, State and Local Government will greatly enhance access for larger cruise ships to the Port of Eden.


Enjoy local seafood at a café by the wharf

Surprise your tastebuds with fresh seafood as you relax at one of the cafés or restaurants by the wharf. Stay awhile and capture the moods of the stunning views over Twofold Bay with Mt Imlay (Balawan) in the distance.

Explore the ocean wonders from Snug Cove This region is where warm waters meet colder waters that provide unique habitats for a diverse representation of marine fauna and flora. Visit Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre to learn about the oceans, coasts and marine life of Snug Cove and environs. Take a cruise to see the dolphins, seals and whales in Twofold Bay or go beyond the bay on a deep sea fishing experience to bring in your own catch.

Journey into the history of Snug Cove

Before European settlement in Eden, the Thawa people of the Yuin nation who inhabited the area knew Snug Cove as Weecoon. In 1798, explorer George Bass entered Twofold Bay where he named Snug Cove declaring it ‘a snug and safe anchorage for any ship during a blow’. At the wharf, you can inspect the historic cairn commemorating the first European visit by Bass and Flinders. In 1828, Thomas Raine established Australia’s first shore-based whaling station at Snug Cove. In the 1830s the three Imlay brothers erected Eden’s first building, a small slab and bark hut at Snug Cove. The first wharf for shipping was built in 1860. Stroll up Warren’s Walk and visit the Eden Killer Whale Museum for a more detailed history of the area.

Visit Fascinating Sites 1. Lookout Point, Eden

2

(Map V28 – Page 22) From Eden’s lookout near Rotary Park wonder in awe at a headland formed about 380 million years ago. The headland juts out into the bay, separating it into its two ‘folds’ which gives Twofold Bay its name. Across the bay, historic Boyd’s Tower at Red Point sits atop the southern headland of Twofold Bay. Some of the oldest rocks on the NSW coast are around Red Point.

2. Seamen’s Memorial Wall 3

4 6

(Map V27 – Page 22) While at Eden’s Rotary Park near Lookout Point, visit the Seamen’s Memorial that commemorates all seamen who have sailed from the Port of Eden and were lost at sea, never to return. This wall was erected following the loss of the fishing trawler ‘Shiralee’ and its crew in 1978.

3. National Timber Workers Memorial

(Map K20 – Page 22) Reflect at this memorial, opened in 2008 to honour those in the timber industry who have given their lives in their workplace while building our region, State and Nation. This project began in 2001 after a local timber worker lost his life in a tree-felling accident.

4. Mary MacKillop Hall

(Map R20 – Page 22) Call in to Mary MacKillop Hall where St Mary MacKillop established a school utilising the historic church. This was in appreciation for the care provided by Eden when Mary’s mother drowned in the tragic shipwreck of the Ly-ee-moon at Greencape in 1886. Today this museum hall is a centre for pilgrimage.

5. The Seahorse Inn

(Map A, D19 – Page 22) Just 8km south of Eden at Boydtown, discover the Seahorse


6

Inn, built in 1843 by Benjamin Boyd. The inn was named after Boyd’s steamship. Brick cottages, a wool store, salting down works and church were part of Boyd’s grand style empire on the shores of Twofold Bay until 1849.

6. Boyd’s Tower

(Map S10 – Page 24) Drive to Boyd’s Tower approx. 34km south of Eden on South Head. Entrepreneur Benjamin Boyd built this elaborate sandstone tower in 1847. Although the structure was designed to serve as a lighthouse, permission was never granted and it was used as a lookout tower for whale spotting.

7. Edrom Lodge

(Map R10 – Page 24) While at the multi-purpose Navy Wharf, 35km south of Eden near the Chip Mill, glance over at the stately Edrom Lodge completed by John Logan in 1913. Today this lodge provides an ideal setting for conferences, educational group activities and outdoor studies.

8. Davidson Whaling Station

(Map Q11 – Page 24) Alexander Davidson built Davidson’s Whaling Station in 1857. Four generations of the Davidson family worked with indigenous whaling crews and help from killer whales until 1929 in the longest operating shore based whaling station in Australia. See relics of the try-works and read about life of the19th century whalers at Davidson’s Whaling Station site on the shores of the Kiah Inlet in Twofold Bay.

The Pinnacles

To the south of Eden, camp at the rustic and peaceful Saltwater Creek or Bittangabee Bay. Plan a multiday Light to Light walk from Boyd’s Tower to Green Cape Lighthouse or a shorter section of the walk.


Bittangabee Bay

Explore Ben Boyd National Park

Just a short drive away from Eden, Ben Boyd National Park boasts dramatic coastal vistas, whale watching vantage points, pristine beaches and lush forests, as well as myriad ways to escape back to nature. Sun seekers could pack a picnic and head to Bittangabee Bay or Saltwater Beach; both offer secluded spots to unwind and soak up the rays. Fishing, kayaking and swimming are also options for the more active. History buffs must visit Davidson Whaling Station Historic Site to learn more about the area’s whaling history, including the famous orca, ‘Old Tom,’ whose pod helped fishermen hunt whales. Take in stunning coastal views with the iconic Light to Light walk, which can be completed in sections or as a whole over multiple days.

Beginning at Boyd’s Tower and finishing at Green Cape Lighthouse, this track provides ample opportunity to spot seals sunbathing on the rocks and to admire the changing landscapes from heathland to forests and banksia woodlands. Green Cape Lightstation also offers unique and memorable accommodation. Spend the weekend in the heritage Lightstation Keepers’ Cottages and wake up to the ocean on your doorstep. These quaint cottages offer the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle and are an ideal stop once completing the Light to Light walk. Or enjoy the benefits of bush camping at Bittangabee or Saltwater Creek campgrounds, situated moments away from the beach. Visit www.nationalparks.nsw. gov.au/benboyd for more information.

Have a Whale of a Time Eden is one of the premier whale watching spots in Australia. With so many species of whales travelling close to shore when migrating south to Antarctica, particularly between September and early November, Eden is an ideal place for whale watching. Twofold Bay with its large, deep harbour is one of the few places in the world where Humpback whales will stop and feed on krill on their migratory route. Humpback whales

Photos supplied by Cat Balou Cruises

10

Observe the acrobatic displays of the humpback whales. One of the humpback’s more spectacular behaviours in Twofold Bay is the breach. Breaching is a true leap where a whale generates enough upward force with its powerful flukes to lift approximately two-thirds of its body out of the water landing with a thunderous splash. Other behaviours to observe include head lunging (butting into other whales), body rolls, lob

tailing (fluke and flipper slapping) and spy hopping (whales lifting straight out of the water).

Migration

During the winter, whales leave their feeding grounds in the Antarctic bound for warmer tropical waters to calve and mate. Although they pass Eden on their northern migration, most are observed further out to sea and only a few venture into the Bay. Best whale watching opportunities at Eden occur during spring when the whales migrate south to Antarctica.


Species

The majority of whales sighted in the Eden area are humpback whales on their southern migration. At the start of the season it is mainly sub adults, followed by mother/calf pods which frequent Twofold Bay. Other species seen include southern rights, blue, dwarf minke, bryde’s, orca, pilot, sperm and several species of beaked whales.

Whale watching cruises

The best way to get up close to these intriguing mammals for your chance to look into a whale’s massive mouth is to go aboard the Cat Balou or Freedom Charters vessels operating out of Snug Cove. Cat Balou is a larger 75 seat boat while Freedom Charters ‘Connemara’ is a smaller vessel carrying up to 12 passengers.

Both charters offer personalised whale watching tours from late September through to November. Reservations and full details for all cruises can be obtained from the Eden Visitor Information Centre.

Watch whales from shore When you hear the siren sound from the Eden Killer Whale Museum, head towards the Rotary Park Lookout and the platform at the eastern end of Bass Street.

Eden’s whaling history

From the 1820s until 1930, whales were hunted in Twofold Bay. Men in open wooden boats, assisted by a pack of killer whales, hunted whales for their oil and bone. For an in-depth insight to this whaling history visit Eden Killer Whale Museum and see the skeleton of ‘Old Tom.’

‘Marine mammal researchers from Australia and overseas class Eden as a whale watching hot spot where different species of whales can be seen, quite often close to shore.’ — Ros Butt (Whale watching cruise operator for 25 years) 11


Drop in a Line Eden offers outstanding facilities and opportunities for all types of fishermen. Twofold Bay and adjacent areas are well stocked with a wide variety of fish. Everyone usually has a favourite fishing location but if you are coming to Eden for the first time call in to the Eden Visitor Information Centre for tide charts and general information on regulations (which apply to all types of local fishing), licences and fishing maps of known hot spots. The free triple lane boat ramp at Quarantine Bay, with fish cleaning tables, floating wharf and boat washing facilities, offers the best of its kind on the South Coast. Access to the Bay and ocean is direct and, with no bars or shallow reefs to cross, safety is not compromised.

12

Game fishing

Eden has some of the best water on the South Coast for game fishing with a high success rate per trip. Experience the thrill of a lifetime, chasing some of the best fighting fish in the sea including the mighty marlin, yellowfin, albacore and striped tuna, shark and broadbill swordfish. The main game fishing season starts in November and runs until the end of July.

Reef fishing

Eden is well known for super catches of kingfish, snapper and morwong off our local reefs. Remember to try our local beaches on the way home for a few of our plentiful flathead.


If you do not have a boat, fishing charters (either shared or private) can be arranged through the Eden Visitor Information Centre with a variety of operators who depart daily from Eden, weather permitting.

Beach fishing

Long Beach, within the pristine Ben Boyd National Park North, will provide anglers with lots of fun especially with the salmon and tailor. Other beaches worth a try include Aslings, Saltwater and Wonboyn Beaches.

Estuary fishing

The Kiah River Inlet, Wonboyn Lake, Nullica River Inlet and the entrance to Lake Curalo offer anglers a challenge to catch a hearty feed of bream, whiting or flathead.

Rock fishing

Outstanding catches are often reported off rock shelves from North Head down to Green Cape. Pulpit Rock at Green Cape enjoys legendary status. However good catches of drummer, luderick, leatherjacket, salmon and tailor are possible from North Head and Eagles Claw. Please take care when rock fishing and never fish alone.

Other fishing Opportunities

Youngsters get tremendous fun fishing off our wharves either at Snug Cove or across the Bay at the Navy Wharf (open when shipping schedules allow). A small hook will yield plenty of yellowtail, slimy mackerel and trevally.

Eden Killer whale Museum has helped put Eden on the international map with its centrepiece attraction, the skeleton of the orca ‘Old Tom’, the only complete orca skeleton on public display in the southern hemisphere. The museum tells the story of one of the most unique relationships in world history – the story of the ‘Killers of Eden’, a pod of orcas who worked side-by-side with human whalers to hunt baleen whales. Of all the killers, there’s one who holds a special place in the hearts of all who have walked through the museum’s doors. Over 80 years after his death, the skeleton of ‘Old Tom’ remains preserved in the museum, attracting over 50,000 visitors each year, and surrounded by an ever-changing array of exhibitions showcasing local history.

Perfectly situated on the shores of Twofold Bay, the museum is also an ideal vantage point to catch a glimpse of the whales putting on a show off Middle Head, blending Eden’s whaling past with its whale watching present.

Regional Coastal Wilderness

Ben Boyd National Park Explore Australia’s coastal wilderness along sandy beaches, rugged headlands and coastal forest. This national park stretching from Pambula to the Green Cape Light Station offers unique opportunities for bushwalking, family picnics, fishing and camping.

Haycock Point to Barmouth Beach – Map R3 A well-established popular picnic area, Haycock Point is the start of a very scenic 5km return walk around to Barmouth Beach on the Pambula River. At Haycock Point enjoy wide panoramic coastal views and explore the extensive rockpools.

The Pinnacles – Map R5 The Pinnacles, formed about 65 million years ago, is a natural cliff formation of white sands and red gravel clay. The red colour is iron oxide (rust) produced by rock weathering over time in a changing climate. The top of the white sediment marks the level of an ancient water table. On the 1km loop walk you will pass through forest, woodland, heath and a moist gully.

Light to Light Walk – Map S10 For the Light to Light trek, 31km one way through the magnificent Ben Boyd National Park, follow the coastline from Boyd’s Tower to Green Cape Lighthouse. This is normally a two to three day hike although it can be broken into shorter sections by access to Saltwater Creek or Bittangabee Bay. On your walk, take in the dramatic red cliffs, red rock platforms, rugged headlands, coastal heath and white beaches.

Severs Beach – Map Q3 A pleasant 300m walk from the car park at Severs Beach Road in Ben Boyd (North) National Park takes you to Pambula River where you can swim, fish, kayak, picnic and take in bushland and river views.

Mt Imlay (Balawan) – Map I14 Mount Imlay, at 888m high, is a favourite with adventurous hikers. From the Burrawang picnic area, the marked trail of 6km return is an almost continuous steep climb to the summit. Mt Imlay is located 35km south-west of Eden. Wonboyn – Map R18 Favourite spots with fishermen, Wonboyn Lake and Wonboyn Beach are renowned for supplying a good catch. The natural beauty of Nadgee Nature Reserve from Baycliff to Greenglades makes the area attractive for a day outing. Local Rainforest Walks Two magnificent rainforests are Maxwell’s Rainforest (Map L26) in Nadgee State Forest and Goodenia Rainforest (Map I1) in the South East Forests National Park entered at Chalkhills Road off Mt Darragh Road, South Pambula. Each walk is approximately 1.2km return.

‘Eden’s diverse and beautifully coloured rocks along the magnificent coastline are scientifically significant and challenging to study, spanning hundreds of millions of years of time.’ — Anne Felton (Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists) 25
