Nethercote: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Killer Whale Trail


Take a day trip back in time. When boats were made of wood and men were made of steel!

It's a trail rich with whales and tales of adventure. This self-drive day tour takes you to five historical sites set in breathtaking natural surrounds around Eden on the Sapphire Coast NSW.

Uncover the dramatic history of whaling from 1828 to1930 and learn about the unique relationship between the mariners and the wild killer whales (orcas).

In spring (September to November) these sites become perfect vantage points to view humpback whales as they migrate close to the coast.

You will find another chapter of the story at each stop. Bring your smartphone to scan the interpretive signs and view historical photos, video and audio to delve deeper into the story of the Killer Whales of Eden.

Eden Killer Whale Museum


The Eden Killer Whale Museum has been in operation for over 80 years and is a publicly owned facility.

The building is situated overlooking the Pacific Ocean where, in the season, whales may be seen from the various vantage points.

Exhibitions about the shore-based whaling operations from Twofold Bay during the 1800s and early 1900s include a full skeleton of 'Tom' the Killer Whale, legendary Orca. He led a pack of killer whales in the hunt for baleen whales on their southward migration each year.

There is also an exhibition relating to the involvement of local indigenous Australians in shore-based whaling. There is a full scale model of the type of whale boat used in whale chases out of Twofold Bay.

Exhibitions depicting the local fishing and timber industry tell of the extremely important role that these industries have had and continue to play in the Eden community.

Snug Cove


The third deepest natural harbour in the southern hemisphere, Snug Cove is where three wharves unite as one. You are welcome to wander the wharves and watch fishermen unloading their catch.

One entry to Snug Cove is via Warrens Walk, which was named after the local fishing family who worked in the industry for generations since 1883.

In 1828, Thomas Raine established the first shore based whaling station on mainland Australia. A small pier was erected by Raine, as well as slab huts for a home and for the whaling try-works. The first wharf built for shipping was built in 1860.

Sit back at one of the restaurants and appreciate the spectacular deep blue water with iconic Mount Imlay in the distance.
