1. Historic Eden
From the early habitation of the Thaua people of the Yuin Nation, through European settlement up to today, Eden’s affinity with the ocean is deep. Whales, whaling and fishing have played a large part in the development of the town, and the Greenseas fish cannery was a major industry for 40 years in Eden. The township of Eden was designated in 1843 by Sir George Gipps, Governor of the colony of New South Wales, Australia.
