Eden is often described as a natural paradise with its stunning setting on the shores of Twofold Bay and surrounded by Ben Boyd National Park with its forests and unspoilt beaches. Twofold Bay and local beaches – such as Aslings Beach and Cocora Beach – offer excellent opportunities for a wide range of water sports, fishing and boating – or just relaxing with a swim or a walk along a secluded stretch of sand.

Apart from the fishing boats – and fishing, diving and whale-watching charters – to enjoy the wharf is also the perfect place to indulge in the local fare (especially seafood) at the range of cafes and restaurants on the waterfront.
