An area of broken and largely snow-free hills and valleys, about 25 square miles in area lying south-east of Allan Nunatak, and separated from it by the Odell Glacier. At the south end of the hills stands the 2590m Mount Brooke, from the base of which narrow ridges run south and south-east into the upper Mackay névé. Discovered by the Northern Survey Party of the NZTAE, 1956-58, in December 1957, and named by them after Professor D S Coombs, Professor of Geology at the University of Otago, New Zealand, who assisted the expedition in obtaining essential petrological equipment. It lies partly in Australian territory.
