Glasshouse Series, Flinders’ Tour
July 24, 2021
Lieutenant (later Captain) Matthew Flinders was the first explorer to enter Glass House Bay (now Moreton Bay). Having left Sydney on 8 July 1799 in HM Sloop Norfolk he reached Cape Moreton on 14 July. For two weeks he explored the bay and its environs.
Having encamped over the 26th and 27th of July, he hiked to the Glasshouse Mountains, climbing Beerburrum and visiting the foot of Tibrogargan.
Starting at Beerburrum State School, Flinders Tour has been held on the closest weekend to this anniversary since 2003, skipping only 2020 (due to COVID restrictions).
