A wide sheet-like glacier lying between Convoy Range on the east, and Mount Brooke and its associated hills and ridges on the west. It drains slowly south to join the Mackay Glacier between Gateway Nunatak and Mount Bergen. Surveyed by the Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, in November-December 1957.
