Eden is a small town on the southern coast of New South Wales in the Sapphire Coast region, where the waters sparkle and shine bright across the entire shore. Eden is ideal for travellers looking to enjoy the outdoors, as you'll find parks and waters in equal measure with opportunities for hiking, fishing, swimming, bushwalking and surfing. Travellers of all ages can enjoy the attractions here, while whale watchers may want to visit between May and early November for the best chances to spot these creatures during their annual migration.
