It’s an oceanic migration like no other, and Eden has been an important part of it for centuries.
See how the townspeople celebrate it today with whale watching from se and shore, art, street theatre and music while we feast on the harvest from sea and soil.
Held in and around the port, with both ticketed and free events, the festival embraces Eden’s maritime and bush heritage and celebrates it with a huge party on the Saturday night.
It’s the most unique whale watching experience the nation has to offer, and one that Australian Geographic ranked number one for whale watching destinations in Australia in 2014.
The whales can be seen in large numbers in the town’s stunning Twofold Bay, whether you are in a boat or on shore with a picnic of local produce.
There’s a spectacular street parade, vibrant markets showcasing and selling the work of local artisans, great local food and wine, educational marine displays and presentations, quality children’s entertainment, live music and – of course – the best whale watching experience in Australia.
