Sotzmann's map of the pacific is a popular German depiction of Australasia. Here Australia can be seen still connected to Tasmania as was believed until Flinder and Bass's discoveries in 1798 confirmed that Tasmania was infact an Island. Australia is also still referred to here as Ulimaroa. Within the following eleven years after this map printing Australia's coastlines would go through a number of changes as the final mysteries of the Australian coastlines were explored.
