Bill Kitson has just written a book (not yet published) on the Admiralty Surveyors who charted the Queensland coastline between 1860 and 1914. While early navigators like Cook, Flinders, King and Blackwood carried out surveys along a particular route, it was these later surveyors who charted our coastlines in great detail thus ensuring safe passage for all those who sailed the waters.The only recognition these young men received was to have their names attached to the reefs, rocks and islands along the coast. Bill has made contact with the relatives of these Captains, Commanders, Lieutenants and others who carried out the work, receiving from them, letters, photographs and art works. His book tells their stories. The presentation on the day uses all of the above material to tell their stories of how they mapped the Queensland coastline.
