Statue of Captain Matthew Flinders who was the first to navigate around Australia and prove that it was indeed a continent. Flinders' remains have recently been discovered in an archaeological dig in Euston, London, UK. Flinders is credited with giving Australia its name. Behind the statue, you will see a smaller statue of his cat Trim, who accompanied Flinders on his circumnavigation of Australia.
