The Eden Whale Festival is held each year in the township of Eden on the far south coast of NSW, known as the Sapphire Coast. The Eden Whale Festival showcases the port’s rich maritime and whaling history and is also the time when locals and visitors get together to celebrate the whales along the stunning Sapphire Coast. In 2014 the Eden Whale Festival will be held on 1 and 2 November. Saturday’s program will include the spectacular street parade in the heart of the town, vibrant markets, live music, stage performances, diverse artisans and great food and wine. Sunday’s ‘Discover Eden’ is about guided tours, on and off the water, and self-guided discovery of the port’s unique whaling history.
