A visit to Boyd’s Tower, or a walk in Ben Boyd National Park is a great way to spend a day.

It’s that time again, parents!

Yep, that’s right, the kids are home for two weeks and itching for something to do.

But never fear, we’ve got you covered with our school holiday fun and activity suggestions for Eden and surrounding towns.

Check out our list of activities below, and don’t forget that there are also plenty of opportunities to get out of the house on a daily basis and visit local attractions.

The Eden Killer Whale Museum's new exhibition, ‘The Sapphire Coast: sparkling for 55 years’ has been open for less than two weeks, and is proving a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

Take a walk in the beautiful Ben Boyd National Park, take the Killer Whale Trail, head out on the Australia’s Coastal Wilderness Drive, go fishing ...

The choice is yours!

Here’s our guide to what’s on, and if you’re still short on ideas, drop into the Eden Visitor Information Centre and have a chat to their friendly staff.
