This name originates from Australia. It is part of the Australian Antarctic Gazetteer.
The name Jacka Valley has been used by expeditioners to Heard Island since the 1960s for the valley formed by the Jacka Glacier. The Jacka Glacier has been retreating since first named in the 1940s and has now retreated to a small area high above the valley floor. The Jacka Glacier was named for Fred J Jacka, physicist, 1948 ANARE Heard Island Expedition and proposed by the 1948 ANARE. With the retreat of the glacier it was decided to name the new valley using the original name.
