21st August 1820
On this day, 21st August 1820, Allan Cunningham visited South Goulburn Island, when he accompanied Phillip Parker King on his third survey of the Australian coast.
On the 21st, the party landed again on South Goulburn Island, for the purpose of wooding and watering, and where they were as usual exposed to the mischievous attacks of the natives of that place; but, with the precaution that always pervaded Captain King’s movements, nothing serious happened to the voyagers. 1ROBERT HEWARD’S BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF ALLAN CUNNINGHAM, PAGE 258
