Camping in Eden

The fishing town of Eden is perched on Twofold Bay. It’s a town built on whaling but now, happily, it’s a whale-watching town. The Eden Killer Whale Museum sounds a siren when whales are sited and there are several good whale lookouts from where you can spot them. Two places for camper vans stand out in Eden.
