    As Eden becomes an increasingly popular cruise destination, the Eden Welcome Centre will be a new facility to greet up to 100,000 visiting cruise passengers each year.

    The Eden Welcome Centre will be located on the existing co-op site adjacent to Eden Ice Supplies within close proximity of the recently completed cruise wharf.

    Designed by award-winning architectural firm, Cox, designers of the Bermagui Fishermen’s Wharf, the Eden Welcome Centre will be will have:

    • two floors with an approximate size of 1200 square metres
    • a ground floor with capacity for visitors, an area for market stallholders and restroom amenities
    • a first floor with office space for multi-agency staff with maritime responsibilities and other commercial uses.

    Celebrating the town’s main industries of fishing, forestry and tourism, the building is intended to act as a symbol of Eden's past and its future. The structure and cladding will be made from native hardwoods from the region as a tribute to the local timber industry and will encompass features from Eden’s rich maritime and fishing industry.
