Narrative

A bay about 9 km wide, formed by a recession of limited extent in the ice cliffs, just west of Point Williams, on the coast of Mac.Robertson Land. Discovered on 12 February, 1931, by BANZARE under Sir Douglas Mawson, who so named it because it formed only a shallow indentation in the coastline.
