The Port of Eden is the most southern declared Port in NSW, and services the South Coast of NSW, including the towns of Bega, Merimbula, Bombala and Cooma. The Port is home to one of the largest fishing fleets in NSW, and also has significant capacity to service the needs of a variety of importers and exporters. To facilitate trade through the new wharf, NSW Maritime has developed a 4ha cargo storage facility approximately 300 metres from the wharf.
