Abstract:

The history of settlement of the Investigator Group of Islands is described. Both Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin visited and surveyed the islands. Sealers and whalers worked the islands and several sites relating to these early enterprises were recorded. The pastoral history of Flinders Island dating from 1845 is documented. Seven shipwrecks are known to have occurred around the islands and these are described from written records. A catalogue of the physical remains of the settlement history of the Investigator Group is provided, together with location maps and photographs.
