Mapping with Matthew Flinders

The map of Australia and many of our place names are the work of Matthew Flinders but how well do we know this important explorer? Come on a journey of discovery with the State Library of NSW as we commemorate 200 years since his death.



The State Library collection encompasses many of Matthew Flinders personal possessions, including his chess set, sword and miniature writing box.  See some of these treasures up close as we circumnavigate Australia with the great explorer and his cat Trim in this one hour, free video conference.
