Cruise – Eden

16 September 2014

Eden, on the NSW South Coast, is ideally situated mid-way between Sydney and Melbourne. With its stunning harbour, Twofold Bay is the third deepest natural harbour in the world.

Set in coastal wilderness of magnificent rugged landscapes with golden beaches and crystal waters, Eden is a whale watching wonderland throughout spring. It is home to some of Australia’s most significant whale heritage sites and the amazing ‘Killers of Eden’ story, which can be experienced on the ‘Killer Whale Trail’ all year round.

Port Capabilities

  • Larger vessels favour anchorage in a sheltered location - just a 5 minute tender ride lands passengers in the heart of town.
  • Breakwater Wharf caters for smaller vessels of up to 105 metres LOA - within walking distance of town.

Port upgrade: There are plans for the Port of Eden to undertake a major upgrade and expand capacity to allow ships up to 330m to pull up alongside. The expected completion date is November 2018.
