    Cruise a twin-hulled catamaran through Twofold Bay, following the beautiful coastline blanketed with forests and dotted with historical buildings.


    After a brief walk along the pier, you will board a sleek, twin-hulled catamaran and begin a leisurely cruise through Twofold Bay, one of the deepest natural harbors in the Southern hemisphere. British explorer George Bass named the bay for the two distinct curves or folds in the shoreline.


    While cruising, you’ll learn about the history of Eden and Twofold Bay’s vital role in the development of the area. Because of the ideal conditions, the bay was home to numerous whaling stations in the 19th century. Whales are still so prevalent that these waters are known as the Humpback Highway, a reference to the thousands of humpback whales that pass by between September and November on the way to Antarctica.


    Controversial entrepreneur Benjamin Boyd was also influential, as he built a church and an inn here before mysteriously disappearing while hunting ducks. Boyd also commissioned a lighthouse to be constructed, but it was only used for whale spotting after his death. Its tower still stands in Ben Boyd National Park overlooking Twofold Bay’s southern coastline.


    You may also spot the Davidson Whaling Station where the Towamba River flows into the bay. It was the longest-operating, shore-based whaling station in Australia and has great historical significance. After nearly two hours on the water, you will return to the pier.

    Discover some of the Wilderness Coasts best kept secrets. Visit Ben Boyd National Park and the Green Cape Lighthouse, all in a 4x4 all terrain coach.


    Travel south through Ben Boyd National Park leaving the road behind in a purpose built all terrain 4X4 coach. You’ll travel through lush native forest before making your way into the sandy heath land with low lying grevillea shrubs and heathland grasses.


    On arrival to Green Cape, your National Park guide will escort you through the lighthouse. You will discover the history of Green Cape Lighthouse - the first Lighthouse in Australia built of concrete and that is the most southern Lighthouse and the second tallest in NSW, standing at 95ft/29m. You will hear of the tragedy of the Ly-ee-Moon that ran aground off Green Cape on May 30th, 1886; it was a dark winter’s night where 71 people lost their lives. Amongst those was Mrs. Flora MacKillop the mother of Australia’s only Saint, Mary MacKillop.


    Travel to Disaster Bay lookout to enjoy the views along the coast before continuing through to Bittangabee Bay. Here you’ll have a chance to explore this safe little bay including a visit to the old supplies store ruins and the tram line that once ran from here to Green Cape Light House.

    This tour gives an insight into the perspectives of two cultures, Aboriginal and European Australians. Find out about the Whaling History around Eden and the lives of early pioneers. See how 19th-century whalers lived and worked by visiting one of the finest surviving whaling stations on Twofold Bay.


    Take a walk to Boyds Tower, a lookout tower made for whale spotting, and enjoy magnificent views across the Pacific Ocean.


    Drive to Twofold Bay, one of the deepest natural harbors in the Southern hemisphere. Because of the ideal conditions, the bay was home to numerous whaling stations in the 19th century, including the Davidson Whaling Station. While touring the property, which was the longest-operating, shore-based whaling station in Australia. Your guide will tell you about the lives of the whalers that lived here from 1826 to 1932, when the station closed, and their relationship with Aboriginal people and their contribution to shore based whaling. Three generations of the Davidsons worked from this site, and their family memorabilia and whale-processing equipment still remains. The Try Works, where blubber was boiled to extract the oil, is particularly fascinating.


    Continuing on, you will soon arrive at Boyd’s Tower, a sandstone structure that entrepreneur Benjamin Boyd built in 1847 to be a lighthouse. However, the tower wasn’t commissioned, and it was only used as a lookout for whales. Enjoy free time here to explore the area. Be sure to notice the damaged section at the top, where lightning struck more than 150 years ago, and the carving on a window ledge that pays tribute to a sailor killed by a whale. From the elevated vantage point of Boyd’s Tower, you will enjoy a fine view of surrounding Green Cape and Red Point, named after the hue of its rocks. See and hear unique fauna such as sea eagles, bower birds and lyre birds.

    Kayak around a stunning South Coast estuarine river brimming with bird and fish life, all at a comfortable pace, allowing you to take in the natural scenery from a water-level perspective.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at the kayak launch for a brief orientation on how to make the most of your kayaking experience. You will then paddle off into the calm waters of the river, gliding past magnificent eucalypt forest and green pastures with a qualified, knowledgeable local guide. Eden’s name says it all. The surrounding area is relatively undeveloped with long stretches of white sand and dense forests that blanket the hills. As you skirt along the river’s shoreline, you will no doubt catch glimpses of some of the local wild life, including a variety of birds.


    Midway through your exploration, you’ll stop for morning tea and snack, served on a sandy riverbank. The experience of kayaking around Eden is wonderfully fulfilling since you will paddle along at your own pace as you enjoy the scenery. After approximately 3 hours on the water, you will return to the pier.

    Discover Merimbula, Pambula and Eden, picturesque villages known for their natural beauty, historical landmarks and unspoiled settings that have long inspired artists.


    This hidden pocket of Australia’s epic coastline is where you can reconnect with and share your love of nature. Immerse yourself in the local villages of Pambula, Merimbula and Eden all lapped by pristine waters that produce some of Australia’s best seafood.


    Merimbula's magic begins with a glimpse of the beaches, brilliant beneath the bright sunshine. Merimbula has always been a beautiful place of sheltered waters and seafood feasts. On this tour you’ll learn more about the local award- winning oysters - The Yuin People were the first to harvest and share oysters, fish and more, with middens dating back thousands of years, still visible on the lake’s edge. Enjoy a short stop and photo opportunity at Boller point for spectacular views of the coast before driving through the small town of Merimbula. You’ll have about 1-hour free time here to browse the main street where you’ll discover a pleasing amount of specialty shops and restaurants.


    Drive through Pambula, 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. Pambula shopfronts give a nod to that era, with bull-nose verandahs, a town clock and a general lack of tall neon signs.


    Head back to Eden, set in the magnificent Twofold Bay – the third deepest natural harbor in the southern hemisphere. Eden was home to shore-based whaling stations and Old Tom, the legendary killer whale whose story can be discovered at the Eden Killer Whale Museum. You’ll see the pristine Aslings Beach, a fishermen’s favorite and often home to migrating whales who are nursing their young before heading south. Move on to Quarantine Bay – peaceful and ringing with bell bird calls. There is always something to watch on the water here as the bay is home to a four-lane boat ramp, Quarantine Bay Yacht Club, and the Eden Amateur Fishermen’s Club.
