Eden: The Ultimate Fishing Destination


Eden boasts the Southern Hemisphere’s third-deepest harbour — and with no bar to cross and a huge pick of estuaries, no wonder it’s a favourite destination for fishing. With direct ocean access and shelter from prevailing winds, this hidden gem is perfect for all kinds of fishing – think game fishing, reef fishing, beach fishing and everything else in between.

Twofold Bay

In Eden’s Twofold Bay, you’re spoiled for fishing choices — whether you want to head out to sea chasing big game fish, reef fish, cruise upriver, fish from the shore or from the centre of a lake, or just dive beneath the waves. Eden has a four-lane boat ramp, and plenty of parking and fish-cleaning facilities at the ramp. With no bar to cross and pristine waters all year round, there is no such thing as a bad time to fish in Eden.

And, it is not just about the fish — this region is also famous for its shellfish, particularly prawns, crayfish, oysters, mussels and abalone.

Game Fishing

Eden has some of the best water on the South Coast for game fishing and with high success rates per trip, you’re almost guaranteed to hook something big.

Experience the thrill of a lifetime chasing some of the best fighting fish in the sea, including the mighty marlin, yellowfin, albacore and striped tuna, shark and broadbill swordfish.

The main game-fishing season starts in November and runs until the end of July.

Reef Fishing

Eden is known for super catches of kingfish, snapper and morwong off the local reefs. With almost always a good refuge of fish all the way down to Greenscape and Disaster Bay, you’re sure to bring home a big catch!

Remember to try our local beaches on the way home to snag a few of the plentiful flathead.

Wharf Fishing

Youngsters will have the time of their life fishing off the wharves at Snug Cove or across the bay at the Navy Wharf! Watch as their faces light up as they reel in yellowtail, slimy mackerel and trevally.

Tip: Make sure to double check the shipping schedules before heading to Navy Wharf.
