Matthew Flinders ?

Then we would see his cairn at Arthur's Seat on the Mornington Peninsula, VIC.

He climbed up this hill in 1802?

Spot on, Hans! Navigator and Cartographer Matthew Flinders, whose name lives on in many a street, mountain range, Island, university, highway and so on across this country.

Over to you.
