Eden is a seaside town whose coastline opens up to the South Pacific Ocean. It is located below Pambula Beach and lies 500 kilometres from the Sydney central business district. The town was named after the influential Eden family from England, who were involved in Australian and New Zealand politics.
The end of a neighbouring town and the discovery of alluvial gold in the now abandoned mining town of Kiandra was pivotal in Eden’s beginnings, transforming it into a boomtown. In its many incarnations, Eden centered on whaling, but it also engaged in wattle-bark processing, dairying and brick making. Since then, the town has turned to commercial fishing, making Eden the largest exporter of fresh fish to Melbourne and Sydney. This also brought forth the establishment of numerous tuna and salmon canning factories in the town.
Apart from fishing, Eden also depended on forestry and exported timber to Germany, China and New Zealand. This continues to contribute to Eden’s lion’s share of income, with export of woodchips and logs being the major trade at its port.

Ben Boyd National Park’s many lookouts are also perfect spots for whale watching. Eden is sandwiched by two bays, Twofold Bay and Merimbula Bay.
