The Mt Kosciuszko Incorporated is a non-for-profit Association of Polish emigrants, was established in Perth, Western Australia in 2002 to raise public interest in the early history of Mount Kosciuszko and P. E. Strzelecki's cultural contributions.
The lowly objective presentation of the latest history of geographical discoveries in Australian school programs and some mass media is a challenge to patient information dissemination, based on archival sources, authoritative historical literature, especially in English, as well as in Polish.
The surest way to achieve this goal is seen in the popularization of Paweł Edmund Strzelecki's form and merits in the local society as well as through the preservation of the historical truth about the mountain, its conqueror and the name given by him.
Logo of our Association:
Our logo was created on the basis of an illustration which was placed in the book by L. Paszkowski's titled: „Sir Paul Edmund de Strzelecki. Reflections on his life” and signed:
„ Second sketch (…one of five which were possesion of James Riley z.l.) inscribed »Mt Kosciuszko the highest summit of Munyang in Australia. March 25th 1840«. It is obvious that Kosciuszko was the whole massif and not a particular peak”.
The original sketch is in La Trobe Collection, State Library of Victoria.
Please help us to build this „Mt Kosciuszko Inc.” website - send your material.
We have an extensive collection of source materials, which we quote on our website, as well as scans of many books on P. E. Strzelecki, that we make available for to all interested parties.
