Exkursionen in Eden

Davidson Whaling Station & Boyd’s Tower

Explore the whaling history, bird species and local descendants of Eden during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Boyd's Tower

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute dive to Ben Boyd National Park. Upon arrival, take a guided stroll to Boyd's Tower. From the viewing platforms, see the historic sandstone tower built by 19th-century entrepreneur Ben Boyd as a lighthouse for his ships plying the coast between Sydney and Eden. This vantage point offers spectacular panoramic views of the coastline south to Green Cape, and an opportunity to see and hear interesting birdlife, including white-bellied sea eagles (Australia's second-largest birds of prey), Australian gannets and bush birds. Migrating humpback whales are often spotted here between June and November. In addition, learn about the Aboriginal culture over thousands of years, and the more recent interaction of Aboriginal and European cultures during the days of early settlement.


Davidson Whaling Station

Next, re-board your coach and proceed to the Davidson Whaling Station. Upon arrival, learn about Eden's fascinating whaling history, which dates back to the mid-1800s, and the special interactions between the whalers and killer whales. Hear stories about the whaling history of Twofold Bay, its legendary killer whales and their contribution to shore-based whaling. Experience the lives of early settlers during visits to the original Davidson family's cottage and museum, which is located adjacent to the whaling station on picturesque Kiah Inlet. This is a special place to just sit and ponder over a cup of tea or coffee, and view a DVD of family descendants talking about the whaling days in the adjacent living room. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 40-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and standing for approximately 328 yards (about 300 metres), at times over uneven surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and 12 steps at the Tri-Works site.

Haycock Point Bushwalk & Cultural Experience

Embrace the Aboriginal culture, history, and flora and fauna of Australia during this picturesque, half-day excursion to Ben Boyd National Park.


Ben Boyd National Park, Haycock Point, and Flora and Fauna

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to Ben Boyd National Park, a striking stretch of coastal wilderness offering a variety of photo opportunities and activities. Upon arrival at the park, proceed to Haycock Point. Here, a National Park ranger escorts you to a bush track for a guided trek. Along the way, take in spectacular coastal views and abundant Australian flora and fauna, which may include sea eagles, Australian gannets, bush birds and the occasional eastern grey kangaroo.


Aboriginal Cultural Presentation

Next, head to a pleasant, sheltered, grassy area adjacent to the bus parking area for a cultural presentation. Conducted by an Aboriginal elder, the cultural presentation begins with a smoking ceremony, then offers a unique opportunity to learn about the Aboriginal people through his art and artefacts; refreshments are included. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 50-minute drive back to the pier.

This tiny bird has a bright blue back, bright orange breast, red feet and a beak that looks too big for its body. At the conclusion of your kayaking journey, return to the kayak-landing area, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.

Many of the animals at the sanctuary are native to Merimbula, including long-nosed potoroos, swamp wallabies, eastern grey kangaroos, bare-nosed wombats, short-beaked echidnas, and long-nosed bandicoots. Koalas and long-nosed potoroos were once abundant in the region, but are now very rarely seen in the wild.

Eden, Pambula, Orientation Drive, Shopping, Sightseeing and/or Dining at Your Leisure

Depart the pier for the short drive to Pambula. Upon arrival, take a short orientation drive through the local township, passing by several points-of-interest en route. Pambula is a coastal village big in history; its peaceful lakes and idyllic river-mouth are a far cry from the hustle-and-bustle following the discovery of gold near the township in the 1880s. Shopfronts give a nod to that era, with bull-nose verandas, a town clock and a general lack of tall neon signs.


Main Street, Specialty Shops, Shopping, Panboola Wetlands

Following your orientation drive, some free time is made available to explore Pambula at your leisure. Browsing the main street, discover various specialty shops, including an artisan bakery and coffee roasters, winery, whole foods, wood sculpture gallery, local art and picture framing, vintage collectables, boutiques, and eco-focussed retail with a flair for the local.
