Davidson Whaling Station is the historic location of the last surviving shore-based whaling station in eastern Australia. Now managed by NPWS as a Historic Place, it attracts many visitors for the insights it brings to a time that is now long past. Its location is very beautiful. But also, along with the nearby lands of the Kiah Inlet, it has an extraordinary Aboriginal history.
The only whalers to be successful in Twofold Bay worked with its Aboriginal people, as did George Davidson. The long and spiritual association between the Kooris and the Orcas goes back many thousands of years. It has now been nominated as an Aboriginal Place.
