Eden has an abundance parks, playgrounds and picnic spots, most with spectacular views.
There are plenty of picnic tables along picturesque Aslings Beach. Further afield, there are many picnic areas within the nearby national parks and state forests; some with gas/electric barbecues, but most where you will need to find your own wood before you can boil your billy.
