Whale and Starfish is a Dharawal Creation Story which helps to explain the history and some of the traditional beliefs held by the Dharawal First Nations' People of the coastal areas north and south of Sydney. This story has been told orally by many generations over thousands of years and is intrinsic to the Dharawal culture, both past and present.
