Killers of Eden

by Tom Mead


The Killer Whales of Twofold Bay

For almost 100 years the same pack of killer whales returned to Eden's Twofold Bay on the south coast of New South Wales.

They would assist fishermen during the winter whaling season by herding whales into the bay and attracting the attention of the local whalemen. The killers would be rewarded with the dead whale's tongue and lips.

The killers became a local legend and the fishermen, who knew each one by it's individual characteristics, dubbed them with distinctive names such as Stranger, Humpy and Old Tom.

The skeleton of Old Tom is now preserved in the Eden Killer Whale Museum.
