Eden scores holiday destination bragging rights

Eden has won out over Tasmania for one Melbourne family holidaying here this week.

Gerard  and Trish with their daughters Michaela and Caitlyn are holidaying in Eden this summer and the Magnet caught up with them on Aslings Beach on Friday afternoon.

It was a picture perfect beach day – although the breeze was getting up – and on only their second day in Eden, the family were enjoying the surf and the mild but warm temperatures.

While they have holidayed in Hobart, Tasmania for the past four years, the girls persuaded their parents to try a different summer holiday destination this year. 

Eden is it.

“It’s fantastic,” Gerard said as he took a dip this afternoon.  “I have friends who teach locally and they said this was a great place to visit, and we thought we would give it a try. We would highly recommend it.”

Further along the beach the Lamont family from Queanbeyan were hard to get off their boogie boards for a photo - they were having too much fun!

AJ (14), Taylor (9), Zoe (7), and Chenille (6) Lamont,  were staying with relatives in Bega and Kalaru and had so far enjoyed Tathra, Bega and today...Eden.
