The summit of Mount Brown carries a trigonometrical station. A lookout has been erected over this to honour naturalist Robert Brown who, with a party of others from Matthew Flinders' Investigator which was anchored in Spencer Gulf , climbed Mount Brown on 10 March 1802. Flinders named the hill Mount Brown in his honour.
