Narrative

A rocky point on the Mawson Coast of Mac.Robertson Land about one mile ESE of Safety Island. Plotted from ANARE air photographs taken in 1956. Visited by ANARE parties in 1962 and 1965. From this point access to the plateau is possible. It is almost due south of Auster Rookery and affords an excellent landmark if approaching the penguin colony along the coast from Mawson.
