Matthew Flinders Journeys

Created by the State Library of New South Wales, this site celebrates the bicentenary of Matthew Flinders's epic circumnavigation of Australia. Sailing in a leaky vessel, Investigator, between 1801 and 1803, Flinder charted the continent that he named "Australia." When complete in 2001, the site will feature all of Matthew Flinders's personal papers (journals, letters, diary, and memorabilia) held in the State Library of New South Wales as both page images and transcripts. The first item available at the site is the Norfolk journal of July-August 1799. Users may read a description of the 42-page journal as well as imaged pages or a transcript. Also available are a biography of Flinders and images of several portraits and artifacts.
