More information on Matthew flinders!!

Matthew was one of the most successful navigators of his age and his career lasted just over 20 years.

He first entered Phillip bay in on the 27th of April 1802, he charted the whole entire bay including the Geelong area, believing he was the first to sight the huge expanse of water, but in a rush to reach Sydney he left Port Phillip bay on the 3rd of May. Australian mainland and Tasmania became known as Bass Strait after the ship's doctor and close friend of his, George Bass, and a large island was named Flinders Island. He sailed to New South Wales in 1795 and explored an unknown strait now known as Bass Strait between Australia and Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania).
