EDEN KILLER WHALE MU­SEUM

The mu­seum doc­u­ments Eden’s whal­ing his­tory. The mu­seum was built in 1931 by lo­cals to re­mem­ber Old Tom (his skele­ton is on dis­play), one of a pod of killer whales that had a unique re­la­tion­ship with Eden whalers. 184 Im­lay Street, Eden. (02) 6496 2094; killer­whale­mu­seum.com.au

CAT BALOU TOURS

THE KILLER WHALE TRAIL

The four-hour self-drive road trip skirts Twofold Bay, from Eden to Ben Boyd Na­tional Park, tak­ing you to key sites in Eden’s whal­ing his­tory. The high­light is the David­son Whal­ing Sta­tion, a too-grand name for the tiny 1890s weath­er­board hut that was home to the David­son whal­ing fam­ily and, for more than three gen­er­a­tions, Aus­tralia’s long­est op­er­at­ing shore-based whal­ing sta­tion. sap­phire­coast.com.au
