This name originates from Australia. It is part of the Australian Antarctic Gazetteer and the SCAR Composite Gazetteer of Antarctica.
One of the Balaena Islands, off the Budd Coast, Wilkes Land, about 1.4 km west of Thompson Island. The Balaena Islands were delineated from air photographs taken on 2 February 1947 by USN Operation Highjump (1946-47). The islands were probably sketched during an ice reconnaissance flight from the Factory Ship Balaena ten days after the Highjump photography and thought to be peaks. Named after Sub-Lieutenant Geoffrey Collyer (RNVR), aircraft pilot on the Balaena.
