Flinders, Matthew. A voyage to Terra Australis : Atlas. - Plate XV. Westall, William. 'Views on the south coast of Terra Australis.'

Plate XV. Westall, William. Views on the south coast of Terra Australis. This plate was originally published in 1814 as part of the atlas volume of Matthew Flinders' three volume publication A voyage to Terra Australis. This facsimile edition of the plate was published in 1966 by the Libraries Board of South Australia.

Plate XV includes coastal profiles of Cape Catastrophe, Thistle Island, the mountains at the head of Spencer Gulf, part of Kangaroo Island, and Cape Jervis. Coastal profiles were of value to later navigators who could use them to verify their locations.
