Day 14 - Flinders' mistake

Day 14 - Flinders' mistake
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

PUMICESTONE Passage was first explored by Matthew Flinders in his sloop the 'Norfolk' in 1799. This was the first European expedition of Moreton Bay. He headed up what he called Pumicstone River, named after the abundance of pumice on its shores, in search for a suitable location for a new settlement on the northern half of Australia's east coast.

Today's hike takes me into forest in the middle of Bribie Island. I follow a track north westward until reaching the Pumicestone Passage. From there I head south around the shore until reaching the Bribie Island Bridge. I cross over back to the mainland at Sandstone Point.
