Mapping out Matthew Flinders' SA Story

Captain Matthew Flinders was an English navigator and cartographer who lead the first circumnavigation of Australia - a well documented journey.

However, Flinders' exploration of South Australia's coastline is a lesser known story, with Ceduna born Historian and Author Neville Collins aiming to change that.

He has recently written a new book, titled 'Matthew Flinders in South Australia', and spoke to Flow FM on today's Country Viewpoint to share the story.

'Matthew Flinders in South Australia' can be found in local bookshops, newsagents and Visitor Centres along the West Coast and throughout South Australia.
