Celebrate the migration

OCTOBER 13 – 15, 2023

The Eden Whale Festival is an annual event, celebrating the southern migration of the humpback and other whales. If you want to get up close and personal with these magnificent animals, there’s no better place than Eden on the NSW Sapphire Coast. Steeped in whaling history and unspoilt coastal wilderness, Eden is one of the few places to see whales feed!


The festival combines whale watching experiences with onshore activities to entertain the whole family.

Head to Barclay Street Sportsground Eden to enjoy sand sculpting and kite displays, hands-on family fun, outdoor entertainment, photography, film, music, seafood, local produce and so much more…
