Whale watching in Eden

The Eden Killer Whale Museum has been telling Eden’s stories for over 80 years and is home to one of the only orca skeletons in the world, that of Old Tom, Eden’s famous killer whale.

Old Tom the Killer Whale, was the most boisterous of the killer whales who hunted baleen whales with the Davidson family in the 1800s. At times Old Tom and the pod numbered up to 36, many of which were known by name to the whalers. Previous to settlement, the orcas had special relationship with the local Yuin people and it was through this connection that they bonded with the whalers, whose crews often included Yuin men.

The museum has commanding views over the bay, whale watching platform, bookshop. It also showcases maritime and timber history along with regular travelling exhibitions.

A visit here is not complete with some time spent on the vast sun-drenched deck which overlooks Twofold Bay. It’s a great place to watch whales from and if you spot one the staff will sound a loud siren that lets the whole town know there is a whale to be seen from shore. The museum shop also houses a great collection of local and regional literature and gifts.
