Eden was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales from 1859 to 1894, including the town of Eden. From 1880 to 1894 it elected two members, with voters casting two votes and the first two candidates being elected. In 1894, single-member electorates were introduced statewide and Eden was split into Eden-Bombala (including Bombala) and Bega. Eden-Bombala was abolished in 1904 and absorbed into Monaro and Bega.
