Take a Stroll

Perched as it is on a peninsula in the middle of beautiful Twofold Bay with distant wooded hills, there are a number of scenic walks around Eden (beaches aside) where you might just leave the car behind. The Gardens & Heritage Trail of Eden is the ideal start for a walking tour of Eden.  Eden's Maritime Heritage Walk is the boardwalk along Aslings Beach inset with images representing Eden's maritime history.

 

Curalo Lake Curalo Lake Boardwalk skirts the southern shore for about 1km beginning from behind the rest rooms and park where  Princes Highway crosses Freshwater Creek and running parallel to Barclay St to the playing fields opposite Aslings Beach. Water birds abound with viewing platforms and seating.
