Things to do in Eden & Sapphire Coast

Eden Beachfront Holiday Park is the perfect place to take stock of the stunning NSW scenery and explore the local area. Located in a picturesque valley and fronting on to beautiful beachfront, staying at our caravan park gives you the best opportunity to take advantage of all that nature offers.

Our region brings together the best of northern and southern ocean currents, brimming with exciting sea-life – from dolphins to seals and our famous whales. There’s lots of things to do in Eden, including:

  • Fishing – Eden’s sheltered waters provide the perfect environment for kingfish and each year fishing enthusiasts flock to the area from mid-May in search of the perfect catch.
  • Whale watching – every year between September and November the majestic humpback whales migrate past Eden as they move south for the winter. Contact us about organising a whale-watching cruise.

After a busy day out exploring, you’ll feel right at home in our caravan park accommodation, whether staying in a holiday villa or getting your fill of nature at our camping grounds.
