The 2013 Eden Whale Festival dates are set – the 26th October to the 3rd November
Lock it into your diary and if you are planning to visit book into Eden for a whale of a time!
If you want to get up close and personal with these magnificent animals, there is no better place to be in Australia than Eden on the NSW Sapphire Coast.
The whales can be seen in large numbers in the town’s stunning Twofold Bay, whether you are in a boat or, indeed, just from the shore … And while they frolic, the residents are busily putting on Australia’s premier whale celebration.
The Eden Whale Festival is an annual event, highlighting the southern migration of the humpback and other whales.
For one weekend each year, the rich maritime and whaling history of this port on the Wilderness Coast becomes the centrepiece for a weekend that somehow seamlessly links all things whale. There’s a spectacular street parade, vibrant markets showcasing and selling the work of local artisans, great local food and wine, educational marine displays and presentations, quality children’s entertainment, live music and – of course – the best whale watching experience in Australia.
Visit – for a whale of a time!
