Narrative

The detached front, 370 m, of Torlyn Mountain, standing 4 mi E of Scullin Monolith in Mac. Robertson Land. Early in January 1930 the BANZARE under Mawson sighted land in this area, and an airplane flight was made from the ship Discovery for observation. On Feb. 13, 1931 Mawson landed on nearby Scullin Monolith. Named by Mawson for Sir George Murray, Chief Justice of South Australia and Chancellor of the University of Adelaide, a patron of the expedition.
