I have flights booked to both SYD and MEL, so in a few months time I'll be able to claim MEL as my southernmost point, and SYD as the easternmost (even though I'll travel west to get there...)

Edited to replace HAM with ANC, as I totally forgot I was there last year...

I am a massive idiot -- I tapped it into GC Mapper, and then read the latitude rather than the longitude.   

To be fair, I had spent all day reading cases and writing essays and my brain was about to explode!

Here's my map of overland travel, northernmost and southernmost I'm the same as PlymSpotter , although he took that trip up to Pyramiden in Svalbard while I stayed behind in Longyear so he's been further up north.
East and West are meaningless in my opinion since the prime meridian is just a random line and you could be the easternmost and westernmost person at the same time (you'd have to be on a ship though). In my case this would be Anchorage and Tokyo.
