This name originates from Australia. It is part of the Australian Antarctic Gazetteer.
The elevated region lying between Whisky Creek in the south and a point about half a kilometre northeast of Basin Lake (see above) in the north. The ridge slopes away to both east and west and forms the gently undulating but extremely exposed location of a two kilometre length of the Overland Track which has been notorious for years for its strong winds which can knock a person off his/her feet and make traffic virtually impossible. The descriptive name Windy Ridge has been in common use for many years.
