In 1802 the British Explorer Matthew Flinders gives the name of the island because of the great quantity of wild Kangaroo in there. In 1881 here are transferred Ligurian bees (from Liguria, Italy). Now the island is known for the purity and high quality of the honey made here. And 1923 was the year in which they are settled Koala bears.
