Plate V. Flinders, Matthew. Chart of Terra Australis. South coast. Sheet IV, 1802 by M. Flinders, Commr. of H.M. Sloop Investigator (1814). This chart 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 chart was published in 1966 by the Libraries Board of South Australia.

The chart depicts the Australian coastline from just east of Encounter Bay, South Australian to Cape Otway in Victoria. It covers the area explored by Flinders between 11 April to 25 April, 1802. Flinders clearly notes on the chart that this section of the coastline was discovered by Baudin in 1802 and James Grant in 1800. The chart includes soundings and notes on currents, coastal vegetation and terrain.
