Best Answer

The name of Bass's boat, in which he explored, was the Tom Thumb. Indeed there were 2 boats of that name. In the first Bass and Flinders explored the Georges River in Sydney. In the Tom Thumb II they explored the Illawarra region south of Sydney and Port Hacking.

However, later Governor Hunter gave Bass and Flinders the 25-ton sloop HM Norfolk, which is what they used to circumnavigate Tasmania (van Diemen's Land).

Flinders went onto the explore the Australian coastline in the sloop Xenophon which was renamed the HMS Investigator. He was to be accompanied by the Lady Nelson as a survey vessel, but this boat was not up to the arduous task and was sent back to Port Jackson.

Did Charles sturt circumnavigate Tasmania in the Tom Thumb proving it was an island?

No.Charles Sturt explored the western river systems (Murrumbidgee --> Murray --> Lake Alexandrina) and tried to find the non-existent inland sea.In 1798, Bass and Flinders circumnavigated Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) in the Norfolk, which was the first boat to be constructed in the colony (by the convicts of Norfolk Island, and hence the name). Their 2.5m dingy was called the Tom Thumbwhich they used to explore the coastline south of Sydney. Flinders was kind enough to name the strait between the mainland and Tasmania after his companion, i.e. Bass Strait...Charles Sturt was born in 1795... A little young to come along for the ride...
