Matthew Flinders himself has confirmed that he will be joining us on the day to re-enact his arrival on Coochie in 1799. We are also organising a parade, a canoe race and, of course, the Coochie Markets. Food and drinks will be available. There will be plenty of things for families to enjoy on our commemoration of Flinders’ visit to Coochie 212 years ago.

In addition, we are also organising the Matthew Flinders Island Feast on Saturday night, 16th July. Fee is $20/person and child minding is available for a $5/child donation.
All proceeds to both events, and all other events organised by Coochiemudlo Island Progress Association, are used for the benefit of both Coochie residents and visitors to the island.
