A low rocky promontory formingthe northern entrance point to New Harbour on the east coast of Victoria Land. Discovered by the NAE, 1901-04, and named for Louis C Bernachhi, physicist with the expedition. Bernacchi was a Tasmanian scientist who trained in Melbourne as a meteorologist, accompanied Borchgrevink's 1899-1900 expedition to Cape Adare, and was one of the party who spent the winter of 1899 there. After being magnetologist at Melbourne University for two years he returned to the Antarctic in charge of Scott's magnetic survey section in 1902.
