THE man who named Australia is to be commemorated with a statue in the concourse of Euston Station next year, marking the bicentenary of the naval officer’s death and the posthumous release of his A Voyage to Terra Australis.
Matthew Flinders died almost 200 years ago. To commemorate his life and achievements a statue is planned for Euston station in London. It's a project backed by the South Australian Government's Agent General's office in London. Matthew Johnson the Deputy Agent General says he needs your help to get this great South Australian story out so he dropped into 891 Mornings to give listeners an update.
