Excursiones en 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. Walking at the Potoroo Palace is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least six years old to participate on this tour. Although frequently encountered on this type of tour, bird and whale sightings are not guaranteed. The tour sequence may vary.

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.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and standing for approximately 547 yards (about 500 metres), at times over uneven surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection, insect repellent, bottled water, and a weatherproof jumper or light jacket from the ship. Guests must be at least six years old to participate on this tour. Although frequently encountered on this type of tour, animal and bird sightings are not guaranteed. The tour sequence may vary.

Killer Whale Museum & Wildlife

Explore the marine and wildlife of Eden and its surrounds during this memorable, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Potoroo Palace

Depart the pier for the short drive to Potoroo Palace, a not-for-profit wildlife organization. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour, followed by some free time at your leisure for a rare opportunity to see a koala up close, wander among kangaroos, touch a snake, or savour the cooling mist of the walk-through aviary.

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 Killer Whale Museum

Next, re-board your coach and proceed for a visit to the Eden Killer Whale Museum. Eden was established as the first shore-side whaling station on mainland Australia, and it became famous for its killer whales. In the 1920s and 1930s, Twofold Bay and the area around Eden were home to a group of killer whales led by a large whale known to locals as 'Tom'. During your guided visit, learn more about the whales and this fascinating era at the museum, which also offers a splendid view of Twofold Bay from the gallery. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking and standing for approximately 0.94 miles (about 1.5 kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and at the Eden Killer Whale Museum. Walking at the Potoroo Palace is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and bottled water from the ship.

Ultimate Oyster Experience

Experience the world of oyster-farming from a unique perspective during this fascinating, half-day cruise excursion along the Pambula River.


Pambula River Cruise and Oyster-Farming with Captain Sponge

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to the Pambula River. Upon arrival at the jetty, meet Captain Sponge, a renowned local personality and oyster-farmer, and embark his oversized oyster punt for a picturesque, approximately two-hour cruise on the Pambula River estuary. Along the way, learn about oyster-farming in the area, along with its history, modern techniques and biology, and marvel at the natural wonders of your surrounds.


Pambula Lake, and Oyster-Shucking, Catching and Tasting

During your cruise, Captain Sponge procures prized Sydney rock oysters from the pristine waters of Pambula Lake, and offers you an opportunity to shuck your own oysters. Next, get a crash course in oyster husbandry and inspect the native Angasi species of oyster, which are also grown on the farm. Afterward, set sail downstream to the scenic, meandering Pambula River before stopping to see an oyster-catching demonstration. At the conclusion of your tour, return to the jetty, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.
