Dante said the sea was without people until he reached the polar mountain. That's the opposite of the Arctic and not readily predictable. Cook searched for the southern land when Dante could have saved him the expense. If Javanese sailed to their settlement in Madagascar , went to South America and followed the coast , they would reach west Antarctic peninsula. The first Australians at Macquarie Island found a ship wreck of "ancient design". Perhaps Javanese circumnavigated around Oz.
