Eden Killer Whale Museum

184 Imlay St, Eden NSW 2551, Australia

Occupying a prime position on Twofold Bay, where humpback and southern right whales frolic between May and November, the Eden Killer Whale Museum honors the orcas that once swam in these waters. In the 1840s, at the height of Eden’s whaling industry, up to 36 orcas reportedly worked together to hunt baleen whales with the local fishermen. The museum tells their stories, including that of Old Tom, a favorite of the men; the building was constructed to house his 6.7-meter (22-foot) skeleton.
