Eden occupies a position on the narrowest section of the coastal plain, surrounded by rugged hills that lead into the Great Dividing Range. The town clusters along the beaches of Twofold Bay, guarded by the background bulk of Mount Imlay.
This area is home to some of the most magnificent scenery, and visitors to our area will find much to delight them. The dictionary definition of Eden is ‘delightful abode' and ‘state of supreme happiness.' We think that is a very apt description of our community.
The area was inhabited by the Thawa tribe of the Yuin nation before white settlement. In 1828 a whaling station was set up and continued to operate until the 1930s.
Come, join us and explore this region. Meet the people, enjoy our beaches and walk in the footsteps of those who went before. Steep yourself in the history and the panorama that we are grateful to call home.
