Act of KindnessPrint Page
A plaque commemorates an act of kindness by local Aboriginal people to explorer Matthew Flinders.
Flinders was charting the Queensland coast in two vessels when they ran aground on Wreck Reef, off North Stradbroke Island in Moreton Bay, in August 1803. The captain and some crew members set off for Sydney Cove to secure help for the remainder of the crew. It was while at shore in search of fresh water, local Aboriginal people helped them locate a spring to fill their barrels.
