March 12-16, 2020
Crossing into NSW we booked a 4 night stay at the Discovery Park Eden who were offering a special rate as part of the campaign to get visitors back to the South Coast after the devastating bushfires. This is a typically large coastal area park with over 300 sites and onsite vans/cabins plus all the facilities you might need. Not terribly busy now the long weekend is over and the Summer season finished so a good chance for us to stay put for four days and explore the town and surrounds.

The Park has it’s own access directly onto Boydtown Beach with views across to the town of Eden across Nullica Bay
 

 
The town of Eden sits at the centre of Twofold Bay, so named because it encompasses the dual bays of Calle Calle and Nullica; the headland at the end of town originally had a lighthouse and now is the location for the Marine Rescue Centre. From the Lookout here you get a view across Nullica Bay to the Chip Mill and Boyds Tower. We also saw a dismasted yacht being towed back into harbour.

Adjacent to the Lookout is the Fishermen’s Memorial, a wall initially built following the loss of the trawler Shiralee in 1978 with the loss of all hands. It now includes memorial plaques to all those lost at sea from the Port of Eden.
