There are so many other terrific things to do, see, eat and discover, all within a few miles of the lovely Twofold Bay.
Here’s a few of our favourites…

Eden Killer Whale Museum
The story of Old Tom and his remarkable partnership with local whalers in Twofold Bay is a spectacular and magical story known the world over.
The Eden Killer Whale Museum overlooking the bay in Eden was originally built to house Tom’s skeleton, after his death in 1930. The magnificent Tom and his story is the museum’s centrepiece, but it is a fascinating place for anyone interested in the history of the area.
(In short, you can’t really come to Eden and not go to the Killer Whale Museum. Just sayin’.)

The Bundian Way
The Bundian Way is an ancient Aboriginal walking route from the high country in Kosciuszko to the coast near Eden. It was used for thousands of years by Aboriginal communities, and later by the region’s first European settlers.
Quarantine Bay Beach Cottages connects you to the first completed section of the Bundian Way, 1.9km from Quarantine Bay to Cocora Beach.
It’s a wonderful walk, rich in the history of our local Aboriginal people, and with magnificent views of Twofold Bay.
