Catch a Whale? No, no more
Anyone interested in Whales should head to The Killer Whale Museum at Eden, on the south coast of New South Wales. This Museum has been in operation for over 80 years and is a community project.
Eden is some 500 kms south of Sydney, right on the coast, on Two Fold Bay, which is a good vantage point to see whales in season. If you are in Eden and a whale appears in Two Fold Bay, a siren is sounded from the Museum, letting the locals know!
The Museum, on a high point with fantastic views out over the Pacific Ocean, is a great place to explore the local Whale, Fishing and Timber industries.
There are a number of Whale Watching Cruises from Eden – more details here.
Don't forget to find out about Old Tom, a killer whale, that lived around the area in the early 1900's, and was believed to have been 70 or more years old. The Whale died in 1930, but its story is well documented in the Museum and on the website here.
