Snug Cove

Imlay Street and Weecoon Street, Eden NSW 2551

The third deepest natural harbour in the southern hemisphere, Snug Cove is where three wharves unite as one. You are welcome to wander the wharves and watch fishermen unloading their catch. One entry to Snug Cove is via Warrens Walk, which was named after the local fishing family who worked in the industry for generations since 1883. In 1828, Thomas Raine established the first shore based whaling station on mainland Australia. A small pier was erected by Raine, as well as slab huts for a home and for the whaling try-works. The first wharf built for shipping was built in 1860. Sit back at one of the restaurants and appreciate the spectacular deep blue water with iconic Mount Imlay in the distance.
