Nature Tour highlights

This is a sample Eden shore excursion itinerary, all our itineraries can be tailored to groups interests and physical requirements.  

Eden Rotary Lookout – Just a 2 minute drive from port of Eden’s and is one of the best whale watching vantage points along the Sapphire Coast. With stunning views over Twofold Bay, Nullica Bay and the surrounding rugged coastline, scan for humpback whales as well as sea eagles, albatross, dolphins, seals and of course the legendary and rare killer whales.

Lake CuraloThe easy/flat boardwalk meanders around the lakes shore, through swamp melaleuca forest, and across salt marsh and over the shallow water where you can see reeds, fish and many species of bird life.

Aslings Beach Rock Pool – Located in the heart of Eden, on the northern shore of Twofold Bay, Aslings Beach offers both surf and safe swimming, and is patrolled in summer. Whales (August to early November) are often seen along the shoreline, while dolphins are frequently spotted feeding or sheltering in the bay.

Cocora Beach – Cocora Beach is perfect for beachside BBQs with the family, short walks and safe swimming. The beach is pet-friendly. For a glimpse of Aboriginal heritage and the experience of treading an ancient pathway, we will discuss the Bundian Way Story Trail.

Quarantine Bay & Rixons Beach – Quarantine Bay and Rixons Beach are a sheltered part of Twofold Bay, with amenities, jetty and boat ramp. Rixons Beach is virtually wave-free and bordered by a breakwall at one end and natural rock at the other. The beach is dotted with boats and a boatshed, and there are amenities and shady places to sit. While peaceful and ringing with bellbird calls, there is always something to watch on the water, as the bay is home to a four-lane boat ramp, Quarantine Bay Yacht Club and the Eden Amateur Fishing Club. The bay is also a trailhead for the Bundian Way Story Trail, an ancient interpretative walk that can be accessed from the Eden Amateur Fishing Club car park or Cocora Beach.

Beowa National Park
Pinnacles Lookout – The short, flat, 500m walk offers a bird’s-eye view of the Pinnacles — its white sands mark the level of an ancient water table, while the red gravel clay above is rust (iron oxide). There are two lookouts with views south to Lennards Island and north to Haycock Point

Haycock Point Lookout – Haycock Point is located between Eden and Pambula, at the northernmost tip of Beowa National Park. Its iconic Devonian red rock is a significant geological feature of the Sapphire Coast, dating back approximately 350-million years. Humpback whales often cruise close by, and Southern Right whales have been known to shelter close to shore along Long Beach in the winter months.
