Matthew Flinders – A Voyage to Terra Australis

The great circumnavigator of Australia, Matthew Flinders, died on 19 July 1814, just a day after the publication of his book, “A Voyage to Terra Australis”. 
In this readable account of his amazing journey, Flinders sometimes mentions his much-loved cat Trim, who accompanied him on his travels. There is a statue of Trim in Sydney, in Macquarie St, outside the State Library
