More information about
Matthew Flinders marked a peak on his map which subsequent explorers and settlers referred to as Flinder's peak or Peak Mountain. A property in the area held by W.Wilson and later by William Winks was called Peak Mountain Station. When part of this area was turned over to cotton growing the settlement which grew up at a crossing on Purga Creek was called Peak Crossing.
