Why is Hamilton Hume famous?

Hamilton Hume is famous for being one of Australia's native-born explorers, and an experienced bushman. Because of his skills as a bushman, he was involved in several successful expeditions to explore the interior of New South Wales. In 1818, Governor Macquarie selected Hume to be part of a small expedition sent by to find an overland route south from Sydney to Jervis Bay. Together with James Meehan, he discovered Lake Bathurst and the Goulburn Plains. However, Hume is probably most famous for his expedition to find an overland route from Sydney to Port Phillip in what is now southern Victoria. Together with William Hovell, Hume discovered numerous rivers of Victoria, such as the Mitta Mitta, Kiewa, Broken, Goulburn and Ovens. Hume and Hovell first discovered the Murray River, but they called it the Hume, a name which Sturt later changed when he followed it. Hume also accompanied Sturt in 1828, and became one of the first Europeans to discover the Darling River. The Hume highway, which links Australia's largest city, Sydney, with the Australian capital, Canberra is, of course, named after Hamilton Hume, as is the Hume Weir on the Murray River.

What was named after William Hovell and Hamilton Hume?

Hamilton Hume and William Hovell were two significant explorers in early Australia. Several features in the southeastern region of Australia are named after either Hume or Hovell., although Hume, being the Australian-born of the two explorers, seems to have had more places named after him. Possibly the best known is the Hume Highway, which runs from Sydney to Canberra and approximates the route taken southwest by Hume and Hovell. In Canberra, there is the suburb of Hume, while the City of Hume is a Local Government Area in Victoria, in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. The Greater Hume Shire Council is a Local Government Area of New South Wales, Australia, incorporating the towns of Culcairn and most of Holbrook. The Division of Hume is an Electoral Division in NSW, just north of the ACT. Lake Hume is an artificial lake on the Murray River, near Albury, formed by the damming of the Murray. It is interesting to note that, originally, the Murray River was named the Hume River. Sturt, who charted the river five years later, renamed it the Murray. Named after William Hovell is William Hovell Drive, the road between Belconnen and North Canberra. Lake William Hovell is an artificial lake formed by the damming of the King River in Victoria.
