On the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales, you can find Eden Australia.

Unfortunately, whilst I was there, I didn't get to see any whales.

Eden Lookout NSW

On the headland, I walked along the path to the lookout. You can see Twofold Bay.


It was a windy overcast day in the afternoon. Whereas, you might have more luck when the oceans are calm and it's early morning.


The notice boards at the Eden lookout list the Humpback Whale and the Southern Right Whale. That, they are the breeds that journey through the ocean near Eden.

The boards also display the types of activities to look out for. The blow, breach, tail slap, spy hop, fluke-up, and pectoral fin or slap that whales perform.
