Killer Whale Museum
The Eden Killer Whale Museum has been telling Eden’s stories for over 80 years and is home to one of the only orca skeletons in the world, that of Old Tom, Eden’s famous killer whale.
Old Tom was the most boisterous of the killer whales who formed a unique relationship with both the original indigenous peoples and European whalers – a relationship that continued up to the 1930s. At times Old Tom and the pod numbered up to 36, many of which were known by name to the locals.
The museum has commanding views over the bay, a whale watching platform and bookshop. It also showcases maritime and timber history along with regular travelling exhibitions.
A visit here is not complete without some time spent on the vast sun-drenched deck which overlooks Twofold Bay. It’s a great place to watch whales from and if you spot one the staff will sound a loud siren that lets the whole town know there is a whale to be seen from shore.
